ML506 VSX RS232

Dear friends,

   I am trying to implement the UART module to the Virtex5 ML506VSX board. Could anybody tell me how to set the constraints for the RS232 port in the UCF file. What is the FPGA Pin name? Thank you very much.

You really don't need any timing constraints for these pins, RS-232 is too slow to pose a timing risk.

The pin locations and IOSTANDARD are unchanged from the reference design .UCF file

What is the FPGA Pin name?

The board schematic (page 2 and page 12) show the board signal names and FPGA package pin assignments.

The .UCF file ties the design code signal names to the package pins locations.

With the board schematic and the .UCF file, you have all the information you need.

The .UCF file is in the reference design .ZIP archives.

Summary:
1. Read the manual or user guide. Have you read the manual? Can you find the manual?
2. Search the forums (and search the web) for similar topics.
3. Do not post the same question on multiple forums.
4. Do not post a new topic or question on someone else's thread, start a new thread!
5. Students: Copying code is not the same as learning to design.
6 "It does not work" is not a question which can be answered. Provide useful details (with webpage, datasheet links, please).
7. You are not charged extra fees for comments in your code.
8. I am not paid for forum posts. If I write a good post, then I have been good for nothing.
