question aout bVirtex-4

 

hello,

 

i have few questions about  virtex-4 as following and will be thankful for any comment or answers:

 

  1.  i need to take some basic steps toward knowing this board and thinking of writing some simple code to work with its lcd and so on. will my code i used on spartan 3e work on it? only by chaning ucf file?
  2. i don't find enough practical  steps used on virtex-4 and was wondering what would be the best apporach?
  3. my goal is to be able to make virtex-4 communicate with other hardwares i.e another custom board, now do I need to focus on EDK and C coding? or this is a vhdl job. I'm kind of confused here. what should I target here to learn how to have virtex-4 send signal (is possible LVDS) to a custom board.

your help is appreciated grealty,

 

amit

Re: question aout bVirtex-4

HI

 

will the code from the spartan 3 work in the virtex 4 with only a ucf change ? probably. If it's been coded in HDL, and no specific spartan 3 bots are used that are no tin the virtex 4.

 

Enough practical steps ? sorry no understand. 

 

Virtex 4 with other hardware, yep it does that nice. HDL / EDK / C, yep all those are possible.

 

 

Suggestion, take small steps.

Re: question aout bVirtex-4

 

Hello  Drjohnsmith,

 

I'm not following what you said since not sure what bots and tins means. so would you please help me with that comment?

 

also,  from"Practical Steps" I meant if there are any documents that shows some steps that I can follow to see or get some results on Virtex-4? at least get a message on LCE or LEDs ?

 

You also mentioned that Virtex-4 can nicely does communication with other devices using HDL, EDI/C. Any example that I can see and learn a simple lesson?

 

Thanks,

amit

Re: question aout bVirtex-4

HI

 

yep should have done spelling check, typos are so bad.

 

"If it's been coded in HDL, and no specific spartan 3 bots are used that are no tin the virtex 4."

 

 

should have been

 

"If it's been coded in HDL, and no specific spartan 3 bits are used that are not in the virtex 4."

 

Apologies for that mistake.

Re: question aout bVirtex-4

 

Thanks for the response but to be honest still I'm not following what it  means .

 

that is OK anyway so far nothing I found as something that I can follow up and learn V4 in practice.

 

It is not like Spartan 3E.
