spartan 6 example xillybus

Postby Guest » Wed Jun 15, 2016 11:31 am

respected sir

i have downloaded the software bundle for spartan 6 example. The project was migrated to ISE 14.7. the bit files made and converted t mcs file
impact was used to download the mcs file to spartan 6 . The pc was rebooted. The xiiling pci controller does not show in pcitree utility.
we changed the clock in the xilinx pcie core to 100Mhz. Repeated the above procedure. The card shows as xilinx memory in pcitree utility
we used the device manager to update drivers provided in the software bundle. The device appears in the device manager as under

"Xillybus driver for generic FPGA interface" however a yellow mark is there. (The drivers not installed)
oprerating system windows xp 32 bit service pack2

please help

Hello,

Xillybus supports Windows 7 and later (including Windows 8 and 10). Windows XP is not supported, since Xillybus relies on MSI interrupts, which Windows XP isn't capable of handling.

respected sir

thanks for your quick reply.
I have visual c++ 6.0 with me. Is it possible to work in this ? .
if not please suggest the c compiler package.

Hello,

The host needs to just perform plain file I/O, which is really basic functionality. So your compiler is fine, like any other.

respected sir

The operating system now is Windows 7 professional service pack 1.
In the Xillydemo project for spartan 6 lx45t fpgg 484 -3 the pcie core
was modified similar to example given by xilinx for the same device.
Bit files converted to mcs file and SPARTAN 6 configured.
The card shows as "PCI Bus" in System devices in Device manager.
Updated the drivers provided in folder "xillybus-windriver-1.2.0.0"
it shows "Xillybus driver for generic FPGA interface" in device manager with a YELLOW Mark

Device status
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

Need your guidance.

Hello,

The Getting Started guide details what to do in case of an error like you described, namely to obtain the exact error message from the system log.

But never mind: It sounds like you've attempted to replace Xillybus' logic with something else, in which case it's quite clear that the driver failed to load: Xillybus' driver is intended for Xillybus IP core only. Every driver, including Xillybus', is tightly coupled with the hardware / logic it's expected to work against. No chance it will work with anything else.

If you want to use Xilinx' examples, please follow their guidelines for what to have on the host side.

Regards,
Eli

respected sir,

Thanks for your quick reply.The memory selected in pcie core was 1MB.
Reconfigured the memory value to 128 bytes.The driver is loaded and it is
exactly as per the documents.
Thanks now looking in to read write.

Hello,

Please refer to section 4 of the "Getting started with Xillybus on a Windows host" guide available at the site. In principle, you may compile the sample programs with any C compiler for Windows.

You may want to refer to the "Xillybus host application programming guide for Windows" as well as "Xillybus FPGA designer’s guide" as well, but looking through the sources of both sides (FPGA and host) may be enough to understand where to take it from here.

Eli
