Can we directly program a bit file into ML507 generated in ISE

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I have a design which uses around 40000 LUTs. I know to program a Xilinx board using ISE and adept. But the present board that I have is ML507 evaluation board. Can we program this board, without using EDK, microcontroller and ACE file,

i.e from ISE --> generate programming file --> Program using Adept/Impact. Can we do this way??

 

Also, is a standalone UART design available for this board.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks a lot.

The standard way of configuring FPGAs is to use a configuration EPROM, which is programmed via JTAG by iMPACT. EDK/ACE/whatever are most certainly not required.

Thank you. I was thinking it was not working. But after programming through JTAG, I was pressing the System Reset Buttons and was thinking that doing that would load the bit file to the board.

There's an option in iMPACT which tells the tools to also load the FPGA with the programmed configuration after the EPROM is programmed. Enable that option and you won't have to assert the board reset.

 

Having said that, pressing the board reset likely ensures that other stuff gets a proper reset, too.
