Hello @ever465

You can use free Lab Tools - 14.7 (1.1 GB)  Utilities to configure Artix-7 FPGA.

You can download it from this link: https://www.xilinx.com/member/forms/download/xef-ise.html?filename=Xilinx_LabTools_14.7_1015_1.tar 

Check this https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/41552.html to get information on labtools.

If you intend to write VHDL/Verilog programs and configure FPGA then I will suggest to download Download ISE WebPACK software for Windows and Linux. For more details check https://www.xilinx.com/products/design-tools/ise-design-suite/ise-webpack.html 

I believe you need to download webpack license (which is free)  from https://www.xilinx.com/support/licensing_solution_center.html 

 Kindly note please check your Artix-7 device is supported by ISE (https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/62332.html) if not then you have to use Vivado lab tools to configure FPGA.

Regards,
Bhushan

Dear Bpatil,
Thank you so much for your reply. I find out that customer  is using XC7A200T
But when I try to download labtools from https://www.xilinx.com/member/forms/download/xef-ise.html?filename=Xilinx_LabTools_14.7_1015_1.tar ,there is warning as below, but I have already fill in necessary information, beacause I can download other software or documents.

Please correct the errors and send your information again.

The file you have requested is not available.

Re: instruction for platform cable usb 2

There is a connector MOLEX 87831-1420 on the PCBA, so maybe we can connect platform cable usb 2 to PCBA directly, The question is how I can download firmware into PCBA, how to use iMPACT to download, select Output→ Cable Auto Connect, and then how? and how to select hex file? Is there any instruction for this? Thanks.

Thanks! I'm downloading it now.

Is that I need to use iMPACT inside labtools to download firmware? maybe there is only sevral step to do, but I really unfamiliar with Xilinx tools, could you help?

Anyway, thank you very much for your help!
