I have got a sp601 kit., installed ise11.3 and CP210x USB to UART Bridge driver (installed on line).
Lunckly ,follow the 《Getting Started with the Diagnostic FLASH Demo》 user guide ,I have passed all the Diagnostic Tests in the demo. and runned the Base System Reference design successfully.
But ,i can't download my bit file to the FPGA. the detail is :
As the tool has not support spartan 6 design in BSB.
SO ,I created a simple BSB design with virtex 4 (the design just include one uart peripheral ), and then changed the hardware properties to "sptarten lx-16, 324 ，-2,", also changed the MHS and corresponding MSS, added ucf.
Finally,This design generate a bit file successfully. i download this bit file with impact tool in ise 11.3, but ,no print information printed to my HyperTerminal,however ,the software application is just the memory test or peripheral test applications auto generated by the bsb.
I generated a bit file with "uart test" software application in reference design "SP601 Standalone Applications --rdf 0015 .. but no information printed on Hyper Terminal neither.
my Terminal Port Settings as follows:
baud rate : 9600, Data bits : 8, Parity: None, Stop bits : 1, and Flow control: None.
and the Diagnostic Demo design (BIST) can print information correctly.So i think the uart can work ,
But why my bit file has no print ? neither did the bit file generated by SP601 Standalone applications provieded by XILINX ?
Is there any problem with the download process ?
Sincerely looking forward to your help.
Thanks for your help.

can u tell me how u have runned the Base System Reference design successfully as i am getting problem my jtag is not recognised and when i connected the ethernet and on setup/ network interface when i select only one option as it comes is broadcom netxtreme ethernet gigapet then it says on status that fpga not connected. i also could not open the MCS file given on the usb of xilinx. pls help...
