USB3 device terminal?


#1

I have got a brand new Ultra96.
I would expect to be able to detect a new serial port on my computer when connected to the Ultra96 USB3 connector. But this is not the case.
Is this behavior expected?

I don’t have an ultra96 to test on but nothing like this is mentioned
in the getting started guide:

I was reading the PYNQ Ultra96 Geting start guide (https://ultra96-pynq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/).
It says we can use USB as a Ethernet gadget and connect to 192.168.3.1.
But I guess I would need to load the PYNQ OS image first: I guess it will include USB3 support.

I think so.

There are definitely multiple OS images for ultra96 but I have no clue which one ships on the uSD that comes with the board. The board I used to have was pre-production so the uSD was unprogrammed… and anyway I long ago passed it on to a colleague who was likely to spend more time hacking on it.

Thanks Daniel for your feedback!

I am using the PYNQ image and the usb 3.0 type-b upstream port works fine on my Ultra96 board. The board is recognized as an ethernet/usb device when it is connected to PC. But only the home directory of Jupyter Notebook is accessible via usb storage. The files on board are fully accessible via SSH or FTP connection since it is also recognized as an ethernet device.

My accessory mSD card carries PetaLinux, but I have not tried usb connection with it.
