Accessing SP605 from PC

Hello,

 

I am trying to develop a simple application based on the SP605 (Spartan 6, PCI express).

 

As as first step, I was thinking of writing a program to access the contents of the memory (say BRAM) on the SP605 , copy it to the host computer RAM & then delete it from the SP605 memory.

 

What I really wanna know is how/where should I start ?

 If I'm not mistaken it can be done as 'C++ code' + MFCs (for Windows). & is it easier to be done on Linux or Windows ?

 

Many Thanks.

Hello,

 

Check out this App Note - http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/application_notes/xapp1052.pdf

 

It has an example design for the FPGA as well as software drivers (including source for the Linux driver).
