I bought two SP605 Evaluation kit boards last week. One board can’t be downloaded bit file through JTAG(min-USB on board) and the other is ok.
Here is the error message.
ERROR:iMPACT - A problem may exist in the hardware configuration. Check that the cable, scan chain, and power connections are intact, that the specified scan chain configuration matches the actual hardware, and that the power supply is adequate and delivering the correct voltage.
PROGRESS_END - End Operation.
Elapsed time = 0 sec.
when assign a bit file:
INFO:iMPACT - Current time: 5/17/2012 3:10:47 PM PROGRESS_START - Starting Operation. INFO:iMPACT:583 - '2': The idcode read from the device does not match the idcode in the bsdl File. INFO:iMPACT:1578 - '2': Device IDCODE : 00001111111111111111111111111111 INFO:iMPACT:1579 - '2': Expected IDCODE: 00000100000000101000000010010011 PROGRESS_END - End Operation. Elapsed time = 0 sec.
What could the problem be? Thanks.
ERROR BOARD S/N: 1150-9603
GOOD BOARD S/N: 1150-9221
BTW, Both are fine when testing through UART(min-USB on board) . Thank you.

Have you compared position of jumper J19 between the good board and the problem board?

Please check the status LEDs on both boards - in particular those for the power supplies. Are they all lit on the "problematic" board as they should be?

sorry, I was too busy to have a test in the three past days.
I compare all LEDs in the good one and the bad on.
there is one deffenerent:
in bad one the DS8(status LED) doesn't light but the good on is lighting.

I test the voltage of DS8 pins, the good one is 3.265V -- 1.261, and the bad one is 3.275V -- 1.836 or 0.9?? not satble.
So I think there must something wrong with XCCACE.

Is J60 jumpered on the problematic board?

Can you try a different USB cable with the JTAG port to see if that helps?

The USB cable is really good. I use it to download bitfiles to ML605 or another SP605, it is ok.
when the BAD SP605 powerup without or with USB cable, LED DS8 is NOT lightened. but the LED on the good SP605 can be lighten.

Can you please open a Webcase with our Support team, quoting this forum thread?
If there is a hardware problem with this board then you will need to work with our Support team to start the RMA process.

I think I had the same issue with the sp605 board.
After you launch iMPACT, press the menu button that says "Initialize Chain", you will see two devices in the JTAG chain, the SystemACE device (xccace) and the FPGA, click bypass the SystemACE device when asked if you want to load programming file for it, and load the .bit file for your FPGA.
Also make sure jumper J19 is in position 1-2. (see page 1 of the schematic).
