The Yocto board or board variant variable adds board-specific recipes and board-specific Yocto variables for which the image is built. You can specify the Yocto board or board variant name using the petalinux-config command. If the board has multiple variants, use board_variant config to differentiate the Yocto flags or Yocto tasks, for example, the DT board name for device tree).

For example, specifying zcu102 board name defines the DT board dtsi file for zcu102 board.

Follow these steps to specify the Yocto board name in the PetaLinux project:

  1. Go to the PetaLinux project.
  2. Select petalinux-config > Yocto Settings > Yocto Board Settings  > () YOCTO_BOARD_NAME.
  3. Select petalinux-config > Yocto Settings > Yocto Board Settings > () YOCTO_BOARD_VARIANT_NAME.
  4. Specify your Yocto board/Board variant variable in this config. By default, it is set to NULL

The BSPs are now updated with the board names
