I used ISE and xilinx to use the GODIL In my experiment, I tried to replace the RIOT of the micro kim by a GODIL. Due to lack of time I had to stop my experiments but I'll restart later the GODIL is nice and permit any GND/VCC pins (this is not the case of the craignell) I had the following problems: 1/ even if it fit a 40 pin DIL the mounting is not really stable (mechanically) (really big) 2/ the power consumption is higher than the original 6532 The power supply of the micro kim started to fail as soon as the fpga was configured I had to build a second power supply to have the signals stable. 3/ I had lot of glitches on the micro kim specially on the chip select of the 6532... I had to remove them 4/ I debugged with a zeroplus logic analyser, I think a part of my problems were provoked By the forest of wires going from the GODIL to the logic analyser My plan to solve this problem was to use chipscope (ISE internal logic analyser) This function is not available with ISE webpack This product: http://shop.trenz-electronic.de/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=1_47&products _id=863 Unlock chipscope / planahead for the Spartan 6 LX9 (accidentally I also discovered that on my computer It is also unlocked chipscope / plan ahead for the spartan3 on the GODIL.... (not sure it will continue to work) (the installation of the voucher is bugged and ISE say that the license is not correctly installed But it works) 5/ the order of the pin on the top of the GODIL is sometimes quite strange... So it is better to prepare a sheet with excel or a similar program (for example pin 50 is in the middle of the connector...) To program the GODIL first I used this product: http://shop.trenz-electronic.de/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=1_114_164&pro ducts_id=1179 But it has a tendency to disconnect weight of the cable + programming device + adapter... Finally I ordered this product: http://www.amazon.fr/SainSmart-Compatible-Platform-Download-Programmer/dp/B0 05WR73HY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377582864&sr=8-1&keywords=xilinx+jtag This product is probably a fake of the original Xilinx programmer (old version) but works with the GODIL without disconnecting (cable less rigid) This product can also be found on ebay. When I stopped, some part of the 6532 were working but not enough to replace the main 6532 of the micro kim.* I'll restart in a few weeks... -- Didier Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2013-08-27 07:00:08
