There is a board file in the RedPitaya github repository somewhere, but that is a work-in-progress (meaning, it is not yet working).

I spent some time developing a board file in January. But I did not get far.
I just committed the resulting files to Github. ... pitaya/1.1
I did not test it before committing it.

The file should be accepted by vivado, but it does not have many features.
GPIO and LED should be available in a menu, but instead only LEDs are.
Xilinx does not offer any tools to debug board files, so getting new features to work is difficult.
All board files distributed in Vivado seem to be a copy of the same old file,
so there are not many examples to copy from.
And based on the lack of debug tools and examples I have my doubts board files are well tested in Vivado.
I expect Vivado to have many board file bugs, which would be very difficult to workaround.

So until proven otherwise I think board files are a waste of time.
