ML605 embedded kit error

Jump to solution

I switched on my ML605 embedded kit for the first time to run the benchmarking demo and System ACE error led was on. It contains a 2GB CF (Transcend, Industrial grade). I could not run the demo. SACE mode switch was set to 0001. What could have gone wrong?

The Compact Flash card has likely been corrupted.

Re: ML605 embedded kit error

Jump to solution

Hello! i had some problems with my ML605 Embedded Kit.
I try to use for first time, my Virtex-6 FPGA ML605 Embedded Kit. I followed the instructions for the GETTING STARTED WITH THE VIRTEX-6 FPGA ML605 EMBEDDED KIT MANUAL (the Communicating with the ML605 USB-UART stage).

 

I followed the next instructions:
Communicating with the ML605 USB-UART

Installing the USB-UART driver
1. Execute the installer for the Silicon Labs USB-UART Virtual COM Port (VCP) driver from the Drivers_and_Tools folder   on the USB drive shipped with the ML605
Embedded Kit: Drivers_and_Tools\CP210x_VCP_Win2K_XP_S2K3.exe
2. Follow the installer instructions. Restart the computer when instructed to do so.

Connecting to the ML605 UART
1. Connect a USB Type-A to Mini-B 5-pin cable between the ML605 USB-UART connector (J21) and the host computer.
2. Power on the ML605 Evaluation Board if it is not already powered on.

Configuring the Host Computer
1. Right-click on My Computer and select Properties. Select the Hardware tab. Click on Device Manager.
2. Expand the Ports (COM & LPT) entry as shown in Figure 20. This shows the COM port assigned to the Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART bridge. This is the COM port to use in the serial communications program

 

3. If using TeraTerm as the serial communications utility program, right-click on theSilicon Labs CP210x USB to UART bridge and select Properties.

a. Click on thePort Settings tab and then click Advanced.

b. Set the COM port to an open COM port setting from COM1 to COM4. Note thatthe COM port setting for your system may not be the one shown in (Figure 21)-

 

4. Click OK to exit all open windows.

 

Testing the USB-UART Driver Installation

1. Start a serial communication program such as HyperTerminal or TeraTerm on the Host

PC with the following settings:

• Baud Rate:9600

• Data Bits:8

• Parity:None

• Stop Bits:1

• Flow Control:None

2. Set the SystemACE DIP switches shown in

Figure 2 as listed in Table 2.

Table 2, show this for Switch S1:

---DIP Switch----Switch Position----

         1                     off

         2                     off

         3                     off

         4                     on

 

3. Press the SYS ACE RESET button (SW3) shown in Figure 22 to re-load the

Benchmarking Demo. Make sure the CompactFlash (CF) card is still inserted.

 

4. After a lapse of 1 to 5 seconds, the output shown in Figure 23 should be displayed on the serial communication window.

The Silicon Labs USB-UART Virtual COM Port (VCP) driver has now been installed.

 

BUT ALWAYS THE LED J69 (SYSTEM ACE ERROR LED ARE IN ON), this indicate, i had some problem with the configuration set, but i do not, what is the problem?

Maybe could be the configuration of the jumpers

or the CompactFlash?

Can you help me!

Thank you!
The CF was the problem!

I restored the CF and
Now, the web server demo is running ok!
