Programming FPGA XILINX

To program these FGPA, you need to have a XILINX Platform Cable USB II

After, you need to install the software below : "Xilinx_11.1_Pgm_Tools_SFD" In principle, it could work on any platform, Windows or Unix, but I tried only on Windows XP

Link to download the software : http://polywww.in2p3.fr/~gastaldi/Impact_anywhere/

To install the software, unzip the file, let the tool do and accept the conditons

After the installation, connect the platform cable, Windows detect a new tools, a popup window appears and : click no, not this time click next and let the default setting click next and finish

you will probably need to do this 3 times.

Now, your computer is ready to program a XILINX FGPA

The pdf file "XILINX FPGA Programming" is a quick start guide to use impact but this tool is enough "friendly". In a doubt, do not hesitate to see the XILINX web site.

good luck !
