+QMTECH Zynq XC7Z010 Starter Kit
+*******************************
+
+This file documents the Buildroot support for the QMTECH [1] Zynq
+XC7Z010 Starter Kit [2]. It is a low cost (~55$) Zynq based
+development board. The board user manual is available at
+[3]. Additional files are available on Github [4].
+
+
+Build
+=====
+
+First, configure Buildroot for the QMTECH Zynq board:
+
+ make zynq_qmtech_defconfig
+
+Build all components:
+
+ make
+
+You will find in output/images/ the following files:
+ - boot.bin
+ - boot.vfat
+ - devicetree.dtb
+ - rootfs.cpio
+ - rootfs.cpio.gz
+ - rootfs.cpio.uboot
+ - rootfs.tar
+ - sdcard.img
+ - u-boot.bin
+ - u-boot.img
+ - uImage
+ - zynq-qmtech.dtb
+
+
+Create a bootable micro SD card
+===============================
+
+To determine the device associated to the micro SD card have a look in
+the /proc/partitions file:
+
+ cat /proc/partitions
+
+Buildroot prepares a bootable "sdcard.img" image in the output/images/
+directory, ready to be dumped on a micro SD card. Launch the following
+command as root:
+
+ dd if=output/images/sdcard.img of=/dev/<your-sd-device>
+
+*** WARNING! This will destroy all the card content. Use with care! ***
+
+
+Boot the QMTECH Zynq board
+==========================
+
+To boot your newly created system:
+- put a mini USB cable into the J4 Debug USB Port and connect using a
+ terminal emulator at 115200 bps, 8n1,
+- put the prepared micro SD card in the J2 micro SD card slot,
+- plug the 5V power supply on the JP4 barrel jack.
+
+Enjoy!
