  1. Hey all I've just recently got my Nexys 4 DDR Board. I am looking for some intro DSP projects to do on my FPGA. I took a DSP course last year but it was pretty much only theory. So I know the theory very well, but am not sure what is a good project to start out in DSP? Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you!
  2. Thanks for the info!! I am very interested in FPGAs as I want to make my living using them and related tools, so I will most definitely take a deeper look at stuff like this in the next few months.
  3. Thats really surprising. I'm used Altera's tools for the last few years for school and re-flashing code took maybe 30 seconds. Perhaps we had a special kind of setup.
  4. Hi everyone I just got my Nexys 4 DDR and I'm trying to get familiarized with XDC files and writing some basic HDL projects. I know how to generate a .bit file and program my FPGA, but I was wondering if there is a quicker way than Synthesizing, Implementing, and then Generating. It takes like 5-6 minutes right now. I'm making little changes to my Verilog source files very often so this re-programming time seems absurd. If I JUST make a change to my .v file, what is the quickest way to reprogram my device?
  5. Hello everyone I am selling my almost brand-new Xilinx Nexys 3 Trainer Board w/ Spartan 6 FPGA. I've only used it for about 1 week and it is in absolute Mint condition. I am choosing to sell it because my new job at a startup uses Altera's line of products so I will be getting an Altera FPGA Unfortunately I just got my Nexys 3 so I am try to get whatever money I can for it. A link to this product on the Digilent site can be found below: https://store.digilentinc.com/nexys-3-spartan-6-fpga-trainer-board-limited-time-see-nexys4-ddr/ As you can see, it's worth $270 on the we
  6. @jpeyron Okay thanks for the suggestion. I will try to work through this when I get a chance and let you know what happens. For now I am too excited that I can program my FPGA finally
  7. I am using the USB-microUSB cable that came in the box with my Nexys 3 board. Btw here's an update: So I am able to generate the bit file using Project Navigator within the ISE Virtual Box Application. I then pass that .bit file back to my win10 host using the shared drive, and can successfully program the FPGA using the Windows Adept application with the GUI. However, I would like to get Adept working in the ISE VBox application just for continuity and organization purposes. I am still not able to find the device using "djtgcfg enum".
  8. I am having the exact same problem as timothyheider. We have the exact same setup with the ISE Tools running in a Virtual Box. After having installed the Adept Utilities + Runtime like you said, I try to run "djtgcfg enum" but get "No devices found" back. I have tried to install the cable drivers using the install_drivers script found within the Xilinx cable driver documentation, but it doesn't seem to have done anything. Please advise...
  9. Unfortunately, the install_drivers script did not properly install the cable drivers. I suspect it has something to do with windrvr6 not existing on my system. Here is what I see when I run the script as root: And then when I try to check for the devices, as root, I see the same result: Any ideas what to do? From what I've read, getting windrvr6 on the ISE Virtual Box is a very difficult and lengthy process. I'm very surprised by how long the process of setting up this FPGA is taking, but I will try to remain strong Thanks
  10. Thanks for the tip. I will to manually install the digilent cable drivers on my ISE VirtualBox when I get home and let you know how it goes.
  11. Hi everyone So I've been trying to set up my Nexys 3 (Spartan-6 FPGA) board to do some projects. I'm running a Windows 10 Host, and I've been following this "Getting Started" tutorial: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/getting-started-with-fpga/start So I installed the ISE Webpack, which gave me a VirtualBox where I have stuff like ChipScope, EDK, and Project Navigator. I was able to create a new project in the Project Navigator and generate the bit file. Now I am trying to program my board with the bit file using Adept, like the tutorial suggests -
