How to program Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA using Vivado

Hi,

At present i am using Xilinx ISE tool to program Spartan 6 FPGAs.

Is it possible to program the same using vivado?

Please let me know if there is any workaround for programming the same.

Thanks 

Sricharan

No, the Spartan 6 series isn't supported in Vivado.

 

Vivado will still happily load a bitstream onto a Spartan 6, but it cannot build a bitstream for that chip.

Nope.

Vivado does not support the good old Spartan-6

Re: How to program Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA using Vivado

Hi all,

I have thought of replacing Spartan 3 fpga with Artix 7 and i have searched for the same but coudlnt find it.

Could you please let me know whether there is any Artix 7 family FPGA available as drop in replacement for Spartan 3 XC3S1000FG456 and Spartan 3  XC3S1000SWAP ?

Please let me know for availability 

Thanks

@prsricharan 

First, I would create another post for a different question.

Second, just out of common sense, I don't think they considered making Artix-7 compatible with spartan-3 as nobody would consider making Windows-10 compatible with Windows 95 (and I think the comparison is time accurate)

Re: How to program Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA using Vivado

There is no drop in replacement.  Different voltages, different pinouts, different packages, different IO Standards.
