  1. Hi, Yesterday I started playing with the sump logic analyzer code on the Papilio Pro. I took the basic example and started modifying the system to add an additional serial port and started sniffing that serial port. In my sketch I added some serial.write and everything works as expected until I start writing 4 bytes to the serial e.g not "kee" but "kees". At that point OLS no longer works. any hints what is going on? In the attached picture you can see that the serial.write actually takes some time from the CPU to execute is this blocking the wishbone bus or something similar causing the Logic analyzer to stop working? I am using ols-0.9.7.2. My goal is to be able to "trigger" on a certain UART character or other events on the system. I plan on glueing the SUMP with the UART or other blocks. Is the current code in the IDE the best one to follow or should I base the code on the new whishbone based interface?. I have had more little problems: In OLS I can not configure the system to use 1 bank e.g. 8 bits as the SUMP code currently always sends 16 bits/2 bytes I would be interested in accessing the SUMP data over a different port from the UART (possibly JTAG or a different port) but the jtagserver is not ported to linux It looks like RLE is not working (kinda documented but not very clear what the status is)
  2. Well the behavior is that the capture never completes. One small modification I did that appeared to improve a little was replacing the if(serial.available) by while(serial.available). I will perform more tests(also try @bnusbick's suggestion.
  3. Hi, I am based in the Netherlands and want to order a few parts (Papilio pro, some wings and io buffers). What is the best plat to order the items? When I order from the US I normally have to pay additional handling fees and I would like to avoid this I don't mind waiting a few day before getting the stuff I have seen a few places that offer the hardware (sparkfun, seedstudio,this website) can anybody recommend where to get the hardware?
  4. Yea it looks like there is no place to order the Papilio pro from the EU(out of stock)
  5. Hi, I am sure is it documented somewhere but what is the best way to modify existing library items? I am currently making the modifications in opt/DesignLab-1.0.8/libraries but this tends to break my other designs.
  6. Modifying the libraries

    That sounds like a good plan
  7. CaseSensitive bit

    Hello, I am using DesignLab 1.0.8 under Linux and I have a small problem when generating new bit files. The problem is that the case of the files is different from the default and therefore the IDE won't flash my new file. I either need to rename the file or create a symlink. For example the Multiple_Serial_Ports example Creates a Papilio_Pro.bit file while the IDE expects papilio_pro.bit. With kind regards
  8. Hi, I tried registering to the forum with a new (work) account but this currently fails. I am not getting the confirmation email.
  9. Hi, The same applies to ubuntu 16.10.I suggest upgrading to ols-0.9.7.2 (for java 1.8 support)

I will follow the tutorials you mentioned but still would like that the wiki pages I mentioned to get updated as it was not hard for me to find them! And I am looking forward to finding the SUMP VHDL code for the papilio pro!
  12. Papilio Pro Beginner Tips

    Hi, It is now December 2016 and I bought the papilio-pro about a month ago after reading the spartan introduction book and learning about the zpuino http://www.alvie.com/zpuino/ . I previously owned a Basys2 board and wanted something new. I bought the logic analyzer set with the papilio pro board and expected (after looking at the video's and such) that it would be a smooth experience to get this stuff running. by now I did gt some basic sample running (e.g. blinking a led) but it was quite a struggle. -papilio-prog binary for linux where outdated (e.g. targetting 32 bits platform) -papilio-prog source code was not compiling -bitfiles to program the pro flash where missing and the VHDL source code was incomplete -There where(are) no ready make bitfiles to turn the pro into a logic analyzer -There is no official place to download the modified source for the SUMP logic analyzer and http://papilio.cc/index.php?n=Papilio.SumpLogicAnalyzer download have been broken/ don't work -In the last 15 days nobody cared to answer anything on IRC Can somebody/gadgetfactory help me get the basic VHDL SUMP source so we can make a fully working system again? I would like to be able to publish a full set of source code on something like github for people to get a better experience. I am also considering spending some time on making it possible to flash openocd(or urjtag) to program the board as that code is more actively maintained. More notes from IRC bellow: 08:50 < keesj> Hi 08:51 < keesj> I recantly bought a papillio pro and now taking the time to get started with that board 08:52 < keesj> I have some previous experience with VHDL/fpga (reading the intro book) and running samlples on a Basys2 board 08:54 < keesj> I have bought the logic analyze kit with a pro board and want to gets things running (using linux) but I amexperiencing some hurdles to take to do that 08:54 < keesj> the download of the flasher only contained a 32 bits version hence I had to download the souce code and make small modifications (just to make it compile again) 08:55 < keesj> http://pastebin.com/4WKrEyad 08:56 < keesj> this was the error log and this my current patch "to make it compile" http://pastebin.com/TLHxfZm2 08:56 < keesj> unteted yet. Now I am trying to get started reading http://papilio.cc/index.php?n=Papilio.SumpLogicAnalyzer 08:57 < keesj> but I can not download the bit files (I get a timeout) nor can I download the source 08:58 < keesj> the link to the java client is broken Java Client - Download the latest client from Jawi's Alternate Client Homepage 08:59 < keesj> and there is a smal typo on the page (the text reads twice " Ready to run bitstream for the Papilio One 500K board. Version 2.12, use Papilio Loader to load the bitstream. ") While the second time it shoud be about the 250K version) 09:03 < keesj> it looks like the bitstream can also be found in the git repo under Helper_App/bitstream_archive 09:19 < keesj> I also had to create a udev rule to allow writing to the board as normal user http://pastebin.com/NY5euJSz 09:40 < keesj> Next I am haveing a problem wit the programming/programming http://pastebin.com/7b8CAjdY 09:40 < keesj> Device failed to configure, INSTRUCTION_CAPTURE is 0x19 09:42 < keesj> http://pastebin.com/Cj90dRk1 with an other files worked 09:47 < keesj> I was wondering. what transfer speed can I expect for the logic analyzer ? it it somewhere near usb 2.0 speed e.g. 24 MB/s? 11:02 < keesj> the link on http://www.papilio.cc/index.php?n=Papilio.PapilioPro for the SDRAM is broken 14:33 < keesj> Hmm from the looks of it I need to compile a version for the XC6SLX9 myself. 14:34 < keesj> Kinda weird given I have bought the pro with the logic wings in a Logic anaylzer package 15:10 < keesj> some work was already done here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsHemXRid1I 15:18 < keesj> the forum pages do no longer contain the source code http://forum.gadgetfactory.net/index.php?/topic/1925-porting-logic-analyser-from-one-to-pro/&page=1~ 15:19 < keesj> going down the rabbit hole here 22:27 < keesj> I guess I am a little later to the party 22:27 < keesj> http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=733#msg6844 also looks good but again missing links 22:29 < keesj> http://www.alvie.com/zpuino/releasenotes.html#r20beta1 is zo cool
