Hi

 

thats an open ended question,

 

so you need to know what connectors you have on the board,

     what applicsation you have runing in the FPGA,

         what you actualy want to transfer.

 

such as.

 

  if its slow / small amounts , RS232 used to be the answer.

     then there is USB, or ethernet , or SPI, or I2C, or....

 

well the list goes on

 

suggest that this might be too much a general question for the forum, you might need a bit more local support, but that should give you some ideas to think about and google for.

Thanks for your reply.

 

Actually what I want to do is to transfer streaming from the board via one of the connectors and save it in an external device. The bit rate is about 10Mbps, but not higher. Thus, the RS232 does not work for this case.

Now I have no idea how to activate Ethernet or USB ports of the board for this purpose.

 

Your answer would be really appreciated.

Sorry

 

not being familiar with your board or your FPGA code, not much more I can do directly.

 

Suggestions,

 

If it's an off the shelf demo board, there will be demonstration code and documentation available.

   suggest you look for that, it wlll show you how to get the peripherals working.

the board is: XUP Virtex II Pro Development kit and I'm using System Generator 9.2.4i through JTAG for programming.
