  1. Hello!I am an electrical engineering student and I use a Digilent AC701 board, for my projects. I have similar problem as cclaunch had(topic:Fmc Carrier S6 Loading Config File To Flash ). I want to use a free and easy solution to burn my config program to the SPI Flash but I can't do it with the Adept. I want to do automatic boot from the flash anyhow. Is there any new solution for this problem(a don't want to use impact)? Is it possible that the Adept will support the SPI Flash programming?I thank you in advence for your reply.

    Nexys 4 DDR and Adept

    I have a question about how to program the nexys 4 ddr ( .bit ) if the page said The Nexys 4 DDR is not supported by the Digilent Adept Utility then as program the .bit, I use the ISE 14.7 and adept to all projects
  3. Hello, I am new to FPGA programming so I am trying to do the Basys 3 Getting Started tutorial from the wiki. However, when I try to open a hardware target in Vivado, I get the error: [Labtoolstcl 44-26] No hardware targets exist on the server [TCP:localhost:3121] Check to make sure the cable targets connected to this machine are properly connected and powered up, then use the disconnect_hw_server and connect_hw_server commands to re-register the hardware targets. The cables seem to be properly connected and the board is on. I followed the commands above and get the same error. I uninstalled and installed the digilent drivers several times but I still get the error. I downloaded Adept and the Basys 3 also doesn't show up under the device manager. My computer must not be detecting it but I'm not sure why. Thanks.

    Digilent Adept for OS X?

    Hello. Are there any plans for OS X version of Digilent Adept? When I'm at home I use Linux workstation, and I'm perfectly happy with the Linux version of Adept. But recently I was travelling at lot, while on the road I use OS X. It would be much easier for me (and probably all other people using OS X), if Digilent released OS X version of Adept. Of course I know there's no OS X version of Xilinx ISE or Vivado, but that can be run easily in a virtual machine. However, setting up USB passthrough in VirtualBox is always problematic, and even if it works, it never works reliably for me. Having a native OS X tool to program Digilent boards would solve this problem. Best regards, Radosław
  5. Hi all, I have a problem with my CoolRunner-II CPLD Starter Kit (Revision 2.0). I know this is an outdated product which is not supported by the latest version of Adept. But I had a look at the schematics of the current revision 3.0 and I noticed that the USB to JTAG controller is the same MCU like the one in revision 2.0. I'd like to know if it would be possible to reprogram the firmware of that controller and get my board to work with the latest Adept version. Or is there another solution to use the board with a Xilinx iMPACT plugin? (I use ISE 14.7 on Windows 7 64 Bit) I already tried to use the latest plugin but I can not connect. As soon as I connect my Nexys 2 Board the plugin works fine. I would be very happy if there was a way to work with my CoolRunner II without having to buy any additional JTAG cable or another Coolrunner-II Starter Kit which is almost the same like the one I already own. Do you have any suggestions for me? Best regards,jago
  6. Hello. I am working with an Atlys board. I am trying to transfer a bitstream file and a linux image to the SPI flash. In windows I remember doing it from the flash tab in the Adept application. Now I am working on a linux computer and I've installed the Adept 2 runtime and utilities. I've read the man pages for the 3 utilities (dadutil, djtgcfg and dsumecfg) but it is still not clear to me if it is posible to transfer to SPI flash using these utilities. Is it?

    Adept SDK

    The documentation for using the SDK software libraries and sample HDL is, let's go with sparse to be kind. I've been using it for a few years but my last project has resulted in unexpected behaviour. I have a design that uses both dpmiref and stmctrl sample HDL components and want to access both in my PC application. I don't get any errors, but when I execute DeppDisable() and then DstmEnable() I sometimes have the contents of epp registers lost. Then, when I try and do a DstmIOEX() transfer UsbStmen never gets asserted and the application hangs until the library code times out. I've done this in the past with success but just am not finding what's different in the current project that is causing me grief. Does Digilent have any useful examples (HDL and C code) using both synchronous an asynchronous USB data transfers in one design? Also, can I really do overlapped synchronous IO? The API suggests yes, the documentation and my experimentation no.

    HS1 Device Names

    Hi, This one may need Digilent input: I named my HS1 devices using the Adept suite, but I was unaware that the names seem to be "per windows user". So when I ran my automated tests, under a different account, things failed. Is there a way to "globally name" my HS1 devices. I have two on each box in my test farm. There are 7 boxes in the farm. Thank you, Duncan
  9. I recently got a Nexys 4 DDR and I'm trying to get started with a simple switch/blink-LED program. I'm using ISE Design Suite 14.5 (nt64) and I'm getting warning messages that's preventing the design from completely compiling. This is what I tried: Created a very simple design (in schematic mode) using three switch inputs, an LED output, and basic logic (AND & NAND)Added 3 ibuf, one for each input and an obuf for the outputAssigned each ibuf/obuf pin numbers from reference manual (e.g. LOC = J15)Added I/O markers, labeled A, B, C (inputs), and F (output)Get the following warning messages during compile (Implement Design > Map)WARNING:LIT:701 - PAD symbol "A" has an undefined IOSTANDARD.WARNING:LIT:702 - PAD symbol "A" is not constrained (LOC) to a specific locationThus, I'm unable to generate a Programming File (bit file?)What am I doing wrong? Am I missing a step? This was pretty much the same procedure I followed when I worked with the first-gen Basys board, using an older version of ISE (9.2), and I was able to do much more complex designs with no problems. From what I understand, I would create a design in ISE 14.5, compile it using Synthesize-XST, Implement Design, and Generate Programming File (bit file?). Then I would send the bit file to the Nexys 4 DDR using Digilent Adept? Should I start using the Vivado Design Suite? I heard it's like $2000+ for a license. I also heard there's a device-limited license?
  10. Hello, I'm trying to run my Basys2 board under Linux mint. I installed both the Adept runtime and the utilities for x64 using the .deb packages. Everything worked fine. If I run [email protected] ~ $ dpkg --get-selections | grep adep digilent.adept.runtime install digilent.adept.utilities install both packages seem to be installed fine. However I can not find them in the menu and I couldn't guess the konsole command so start them either. This might be a very simple question: How do I start Adpet under Linux? Thanks Matthias

    Nexys 4 Programming

    Greetings, I'm trying to get a Nexys board working on my setup {Windows 7, Xilinx ISE 12.3, Adept 2.2}, and been having some issues so far. Mainly with getting the board recognized. I first wanted to confirm whether Nexys 4 is actually supported by Adept? I re ad in another forum that it is not. I tried also to get the tool recognized by Xilinx iMPACT. I downloaded the Digilent Xilinx Plugin and installed it inline with the instructions. But iMPACT seems not to recognize the Digilent Cable Plugin. Whenever I try to connect, I get the following error ERROR: Could not open plug-in of then type: digilent_plugin. Please check to make sure the correct plug-in for this type is installed. Would really appreciate your help with the issues above. Thanks,

    Adept Issue

    Hi, I am using Adept with a Nexys3 board. I have been using Adept to write a file to the BPI Flash (under the Memory tab on the Adept GUI). This was using a Dell M4400 running Windows 7. I am now using a Dell Lattitude E7440 running Windows 7, and Adept doesn’t seem to fully recognize the Nexys3 when connected (it says Connect: Nexys3 and Product: Unknown), and the tabs are different (the Memory tab is no longer an option). Any idea why this might be happening and where I can look to try to fix it? Thanks!
  13. I have a problem when installing Adept 2.3 and can not connect the board with my computer. First window comes out when installing. Then in adapt 2.3 it shows it cannot find connected device. The screen shots is in the attachment, could any one help me work it out? This is urgent because I have limited time to submit my lab report. Thank you very much.
  14. Hi, I've been working for a while now to create a program which generates a specific signal. I think I may have succeeded but I don't know how to verify that. I was hoping that there would be a way to use the Diligent Adept software or Xilinx ISE to see what my board is outputting. Hardware/software; Im using A nexys 4 board, ISE 14.7, and adept 2. The code I have was generated by Matlab's hdl coder and the out puts are two 10-bit signals. Thanks.
  15. I'm trying to use Adept I/O Expansion on an Atlys board. I'm following the Adept Software Advanced tutorial (substituting AtlysGeneral.ucf) and all seems well until I attempt to start the I/O connection in the Adept I/O Ex tab. Preparing to program XC6SLX45... Programming... Verifying programming of device... Programming Successful. Warning: I/O Ex Status register not implemented. I'm nost sure where the I/O Ex status register is being called from. Has anyone gotten the extended I/O to work on Atlys? Any clue what I'm missing if I followed the tutorial as it is? Thanks Much,
