MAXREFDES43# ZedBoard Quick Start Guide

Abstract: This quick start guide provides the necessary steps for using the MAXREFDES43# and ZedBoard development kit. The MAXREFDES43# subsystem provides an I2C-based reference design for securing Xilinx FPGAs to protect IP and prevent attached peripheral counterfeiting. The system implements an I2C SHA-256 challenge-response between the FPGA and a DS28C22 secure authenticator with on-board memory. Boards for purchase, hardware, and firmware design files provide complete system information for rapid prototyping and development.
