Xilinx spartan 3an Basic Help

Hi everyone,

 

I know how to write code in VHDL. However, I'm having some very basic problems

  1. How do I make Spartan 3an button map to my port-in in VHDL?
  2. How do I make a specific pin map to my port-out in VHDL?
  3. How do I compile and flash my VHDL into Spartan 3an using ISE Web Pack?

I am very confused with these basics. When I study computing science, they never teach us how to do it with FPGA.

 

Thank you everyone in advanced

Re: Xilinx spartan 3an Basic Help

i suggest you look at the ucf file and the example file you got with your board you can see your pins and buttons and how to map them

 

about the compiling you should make a bit file and download it to your board you do that with a software that the vendor is providing

Re: Xilinx spartan 3an Basic Help

I lost all the documentation while moving my place. Do you know where I can find it? 

 

Also, I had compiled a .bin file already. Is there any instructions on how to flash it into the FPGA?

 

Is there a sample step by step Hello world example for this FPGA?

 

Thanks

Re: Xilinx spartan 3an Basic Help

i just sent you a file that has all the pins in your card ( spartan-3A(N)) so now you can add it to any project and

edit it according your design
