  1. I've checked the version of libusb on my PC and it is 1.0.17. Could anybody else or Digilent support team have a look at my question and see what is wrong?
  2. Hi Dan, Thank you very much for your help. I think it may have something to do with the version of libusb on my PC. Before you leave this question, could you please tell me which version of libusb are you using? Do you know where to check the libusb version in Ubuntu?
  3. Hi Dan, There is only one FPGA device on my PCB board, and there is no wiring issue as I can program it through Vivado with the same Jtag HS2, although I can not program it using command "djtgcfg prog -d JtagHs2 -i 0 -f fpga_firmware.bit ". Unfortunately due to the requirement of the project, I can not always use Vivado to program my FPGA. By the way, I am using version 2.2.1-x86_64 of the utilities and 2.16.1-x86_64 of the runtime as well.
  4. Thank you for your help Dan. There is no problem with the bit file as I can program my Spartan 6 FPGA through Vivado using the same bit file and same Jtag HS2, and I have proved the FPGA firmware works. "ls -l fpga_firmware.bit" shows it has size of 801571 bytes. " od -t x1 fpga_firmware.bit | head" shows the following contents: 0000000 00 09 0f f0 0f f0 0f f0 0f f0 00 00 01 61 00 2e 0000020 73 74 65 72 65 6f 2e 6e 63 64 3b 48 57 5f 54 49 0000040 4d 45 4f 55 54 3d 46 41 4c 53 45 3b 55 73 65 72 0000060 49 44 3d 30 78 46 46 46 46 46 46 46 46 00 62 00 0000100 0d 36 73 6c 78 32 35 66 74 67 32 35 36 00 63 00 0000120 0b 32 30 31 36 2f 30 34 2f 32 36 00 64 00 09 31 0000140 34 3a 32 36 3a 34 36 00 65 00 0c 3a b6 ff ff ff 0000160 ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff aa 99 55 0000200 66 30 a1 00 07 20 00 31 a1 04 88 31 41 3d 08 31 0000220 61 09 ee 31 c2 04 00 40 93 30 e1 00 cf 30 c1 00 What made me very confused is that I can not program my Spartan 6 FPGA using the command line "sudo djtgcfg prog -d JtagHs2 -i 0 -f fpga_firmware.bit". Due to the limit of my project, I can not always use Vivado to program my FPGA and I have to get programming with command line work. It seems something is missing but I do not know what it is.
  5. Hi, I am trying to program Spartan 6 FPGA(6SLX25FTG256) with Jtag HS2 in Ubuntu 14.04. I can see the device with command "sudo djtgcfg enum": Found 1 device(s) Device: JtagHs2 Product Name: Digilent JTAG-HS2 User Name: JtagHs2 Serial Number: 210249A143CA I can also detect the FPGA using command "sudo djtgcfg init -d JtagHs2": Initializing scan chain... Found Device ID: 24004093 Found 1 device(s): Device 0: XC6SLX ? But when I tried to program the FPGA, it always failed. I tried with .bit file first using the following command: sudo djtgcfg prog -d JtagHs2 -i 0 -f fpga_firmware.bit Then it gave the following error: "ERROR: failed to set programming file" I then suspected it might be permission issue of the fpga firmware. I then changed the permission for both .bit and .bin files: sudo chmod 777 fpga_firmware.bit sudo chmod 777 fpga_firmware.bin and then tried to program again. But it gave the same error--- "ERROR: failed to set programming file". I then tried to program with .bin file: sudo djtgcfg prog -d JtagHs2 -i 0 -f fpga_firmware.bin This time it seems it recognizes the file and start to program, but it fails and gives error like this: "Programming device. Do not touch your board. This may take a few minutes... ERROR: failed to program device with file fpga_firmware.bin" It seems that the Digilent Adept software I installed does not support Xilinx Spartan 6. Could anyone tell me what is wrong? Why it can not program Spartan 6? Thank you.
