Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

The error is in that printout: etc/download.cmd may not exist. Somehow your XPS project is corrupt or incomplete; etc/download.cmd is a file created with a new XPS project, and contains the JTAG details of the target board. Either copy this from another project, or re-build your XPS project to replace this file.

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

Hey,

I'm having a similar problem while downloading the bitstream for the halfmac_server project. (Workshop Rice 2010 March). I'm using Virtex-4 FPGA board, widows XP and 10.1 SP3.

I copied the file from another project, rebuilt my xps project and now I'm getting this error ...

What does it means by cable connection failed? I have both cables connected to the board and laptop. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

I think you're trying to download a Virtex-II Pro bitstream (FPGA v1) to a Virtex-4 FPGA (FPGA v2).

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

Yes, i just saw your previous post here (http://warp.rice.edu/forums/viewtopic.php?id=855). Sorry for not properly searching on the forum before posting.

So how can I do the noMac, halfMac and CSMA exercises using a virtex4 fpga? Thanks

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

The workshop MAC exercises all build on the OFDM reference design. You should start with the latest OFDM ref des XPS project (v16.1 currently) matching your hardware, then build from there. We successfully used MIMO v2 kits for the workshop last spring.

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

Thank you very much for your reply. Whenever i try to open the ofdm reference design (i tried 16.1 and 15), a dialogue box pops up that eeprom_v1_07_a was not found.

Console shows this ...

Re: Error while downloading Bitstream to Fpga

You need a local copy of the WARP edk_user_repository.
