Hi all, I have the same symptoms as the OP posted here: I have been following tutorials, implementing simple designs like Adders, Shift-Registers etc. All was going fine until today when I implemented a Counter. The synthesis, implementation and bitstream generation succeeded, albeit with some warnings. When I flashed the FPGA, the 'program complete' LED lights up, and the 7-segment display is faintly lit. The project doesn't use the 7-seg, it displays the count in binary on the LED above the switches. The Info at the end of the programming says: INFO: [Labtools 27-1434] Device xc7a35t (JTAG device index = 0) is programmed with a design that has no supported debug core(s) in it. During synthesis, I also get the warning: [Constraints 18-5210] No constraints selected for write. Resolution: This message can indicate that there are no constraints for the design, or it can indicate that the used_in flags are set such that the constraints are ignored. This later case is used when running synth_design to not write synthesis constraints to the resulting checkpoint. Instead, project constraints are read when the synthesized design is opened. ... even though I have a valid .xdc constraints file. So I went back to my earlier (working) examples, and after loading on to the FPGA, they give the same results and are no longer working. I downloaded the Basys3 GPIO example from Digilent and loaded that, and everything works fine (phew! I haven't blown the FPGA after 1 week!) All my internet searches bring me to a Xilinx page https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/64764.html but I don't have a dbg_hub in my netlist as explained in the solution. Can anyone please help?
