UCF Spartan 6 LX45 I/O pins

Hello,

I use a Spartan 6 LX45 board to control a car. I need more I/O pins that the Pmod(it's only one Pmod with 8 pins that can I use and I need about 20 pins) offers. It's possible to use prog. header? Any idea what can I buy to extend?

You cannot use the JTAG pins.  You didn't tell us what board you have or what other connectors the board has.

What is the part number of the board?  That is the part number of the FPGA.  Do you have a manual or schematics for the board?  What is the connector on the right in your picture?  It seems to have a larger number of pins.

I will let you the datasheet: https://reference.digilentinc.com/_media/atlys:atlys:atlys_rm.pdf

In the right of the photo, it's  VHDC connector but I cannot access it, because there are not normal pins and I think I need something to connect to it, maybe an adaptor?

If you want more than 8 IO pins, you will need to use the VHDC connector.  Have you looked at the Digilent site or a distributor such as Digikey for a connector or board to plug into this connector?
