Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I am using Digilent NEXYS 3 board for my project purpose. When I am trying to program Spartan 6 using Xilinx ISE Design Suite 12.1 I am getting the following error.

I have installed Digilent USB driver.  I am able to connect Spartan 3E board properly. But NEXYS 3 board is not getting detected! I am using Xilinx ISE Design Suite 12.1.

Can someone pls help me solve this issue.

Supin S

I believe that support for the Digilent cable was first added in the ISE 13.1 software, so using ISE 12.1 would not work.

Hi,

Are you using platform usb cable II or digilent cable?

Thanks,

Hi Vinay,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I am using digilent cable provided with NEXY 3 kit, and I connected it to the USB PROG port. At that time USB driver was installed.

Hi Supin,

 

I see that the drivers are installed correctly.

So can you try programming with a different digilent cable?

 

Thanks,

Vinay

HI Vinay,

 

I tried using another cable. But still not working!

 

I used digilent Adept and it is properly identifying the chip. So I think the problem is not with cable.

But when I am using Xilinx iMPACT, it is showing the same error..

iMPACT:923 - Can not find cable, check cable setup !

 

I am able to connect Spartan 3E using platform usb cable II.

 

 

Regards,

Supin S
