SPARTAN 3

Jump to solution

Hi All,

 

I am a complete newbie so please be gentle.

 

I have download the latest free limited webpack 2014.2 to experiment with the SPARTAN 3 FPGA on Ubuntu 14.04.  However, I don't see the Spartan 3 listed in the GUI although the website says that it is still supported.  I started to load the new tools from help menu of the Vivado Gui but it looks like this is not a free licence.

 

I would appreciate some guidance as I cannot locate the information from googling or more likely do not know the 'lingo' to search for!!

 

Many thanks,

James

Hi

 

Vivado supports only 7 series and ultrascale devices.

 

You need to use ISE if you want to use spartan3 device for your design.
