Use of SP601 evaluation board (spartan 6 FPGA)

Hello everyone,

 

I 'm using a SP601 evaluation kit but I cannot start working with it.

After following with precision the entire quickstart manual, I ran a communication terminal for testing the board with the BIST, only the LEDs and UART work. No other test respond.
Also, the Base Reference Design Interface (v 2.0.6.0) keep saying : "Not connected to FPGA".
Some of the ethernet LEDs shine.

 

Any idea ?

 

Thank you

Bastien

Hi @bsejourne,

 

When you run BIST test for FLASH test and other, what do you see on tera term? do you see test failed message on the tera term?

Hi Pratham, and thank you.

 

Here is what I get :

 

- Timer test : Random characters. Then every time I press "CPU Reset" button I get some more, but still random.

 

- Flash test : "Initialized Flash library successfully" (sometimes the letters are combinated in wrong order), then "Unkerror test failed. Press PROG to continue."

 

- IIC test :
