If you need help or have questions about the toolchain ask.. :)

Hi Tony,

Do you know if Luis published the HDL for the peripheral controller (XC4010E), it would be interesting to see how he created the SPI interfaces.

Re: ISE Webpack and Programmer

Unfortunately it didn't work so I am spending today putting together a PC with a parallel port from all of the junk in my attic, neither my main machine or my development machine have parallel ports. As I now have the USB JTAG programme...

Re: ISE Webpack and Programmer

Hi Chris, I use ISE Webpack 14.6 on Linux. The programmer is a very simple CPLD evaluation board I once bought. Unfortunately this isn't available anymore but others should do as well. All you need are the JTAG and power connections to your XC95108 socket. You might google for "JTAG XILINX&quo...
