  1. Received my Papilio DUO today and trying to see how it works.. tried on Windows 7 and Ubuntu can't seem to send a sketch to the board?? get the following error when trying to upload Paplilio_DUO_QuickStart sketch..

    first time use and have an error

    Hi Jack, fixed it, used a file to shave of enough of the screw head to make it fit and not touch while still holding things together.. although when the new case comes out I maybe interested in some type of trade or upgrade. still have not had time to play with the duo am hopping to have more time during my holidays, but I am following the discussion on all the things that are being created and look forward to doing something.. I was never able to get my Ohio Scientific based 6502 working, maybe I will have better luck with the DUO.. CHeers and great work...

    first time use and have an error

    Small design flow in the acrylic case, just tried to put it on and one of the screws covers two of the pins. If I were to put a wing on the pins would short.. Will have to look at it closer tomorrow. Maybe I am putting it together wrong?

    first time use and have an error

    ok figured part of it out, I connected both USB connectors, set up the udev rules and I can now speak to the board via FPGA port. but still buttons and led's wing not working?? sill get an error when trying to upload... sw1 is towards the header on the edge.

    do I need to connect both USB connectors? which one is the one for uploading the sketches?

    OK tried what it says and held the reset switch while uploading.. Error has changed.. Found programmer: Id = "Papilio"; type = l Software Version = P.a; Hardware Version = p.iavrdude: error: buffered memory access not supported. Maybe it isn'ta butterfly/AVR109 but a AVR910 device?processing.app.debug.RunnerException: Problem uploading to board.

  10. Yes I had hopped to use my Logic Start Megawing to learn more on the DUO oh well.. thank you for clarifying.. Pasquale

    My DUO arrived today

    Received mine today and am starting to look at what it can do... this has been worth the wait.. Pasquale

    Papilio DUO - Classic Computing Shield

    That sounds great, I had shelved my Papilio pro for a while, just did not have the time... so I am hoping to get back into it and learn more about vhdl programming. If you need help testing let me know and I will tray and help, I am new at this so I can at least test and learn.. Cheers, Pasquale

    Papilio DUO - Classic Computing Shield

    Thanks, found it and ran it.. look great.. now i have a reference to get my 6502 one working. I wired up an SD card and second FTDI port, the second serial works great under UZI but i am not sure if the SD is working did not try yet. Will look at adding Ethernet as i learn more.. it builds under my Xilinx IDE setup so i can now compare with my 6502 files and see why it does not work. cheers,

    Papilio DUO - Classic Computing Shield

    I always wanted to build my first computer http://oldcomputers.net/osi-600.html so I look forward to this new Papilio duo classic computing shield.. I have been playing with this when I have had time but still not working.. http://searle.hostei.com/grant/uk101FPGA/ Cant wait to get it "Papilio DUO - Drag and Drop FPGA Circuit Lab for Makers by Jack Gassett" Pasquale

    Hi, Just received my papilio pro and RetroCade Synth megawing, have been reading the getting started but not doing so well. 1st, i use Linux 64bit and most of the instructions are for windows, is there a Linux section for install and use instructions or will i have to install windows too? I did get papilio-prog going, (had to compile it and create some symbolic links in the /opt/GadgetFactory/papilio-loader/programmer/linux32 and any other location like Installer/lin32/...) but when i try to run upgrade-linux in the RetroCade_Synth folder i get errors about it not recognising the SPI chip. Yet, if i use papilio-loader-gui to load quickstart-Papilio_Pro_LX9-v1.5.bit it works? Not familiar with the papilio-loader-gui to upload the two files below like the script is doing. Sudo Installer/lin32/papilio-prog -b Installer/lin32/bscan_spi_xc6slx9.bit -f ZPUino_SOC/RetroCade-1.1-zpuino-1.0-papilioPro-S6LX9-RetroCade-1.1.bit Well to tired to think, will do more reading maybe i will find an answer. Much to learn with these new toys.. Cheers, Pasquale

    rpflaum thanks, should of gone looking.. found the following in the ram.v reg [7:0] sram [0:32767]; // use 16383 if synthesis fails due to not enough FPGA resources if I had gone looking I would have see it.. although I do not know what the slices with FF stands for... now on to modifying the ucf file for papilio pro.. thanks again...

    @alex does this help to explain why I am having problems..

    just did an svn revert then reloaded the zx_spectrum_48k_papilio_VGA.xise ran each stage one at a time and got the error during the "Generate Post-Map Static Timing" see error below Place:836 - Not enough free sites available for the components of the following type(s).

How do I check how many my Paplilio Pro has? update: also found this in one of the map reports??

    Hi @alex did load the zx_spectrum_48k_papilio_VGA.xise under the trunk folder. went to the "Generate Programming File" right clicked and did "Rerun all" sill get the errors.. will revert to your SVN and try again.. Pasquale also have not modified the ucf file yet, just want to make sure it builds first.. Cheers...

    will need to find rom's first, have not found them yet so I am trying other projects for now..

    ok confused again.. One of the projects from the link zx-spectrum-48k-fpga seems to have a papilio flavor but it is for the Plus not the Pro?? can't find much relating to the specs for the plus but it must be bigger them the pro, I get errors compiling the project. ERROR:Place:836 - Not enough free sites available for the components of the following type(s).ERROR:Place:375 - The design does not fit in device.ERROR:Pack:1654 - The timing-driven placement phase encountered an error. is the Plus newer then the Pro? I thought the Pro was the big one??

    yep, all the projects don't have the ROMS, so I will have to go in search of roms to try this.. Cheers, Pasquale

    Hello @alex yes I am finding that out, I seem to be able to compile to projects but only get black screen because I do not have the roms? will need to see how to get some to test.. Will follow your link and see what I find.. thanks..

    Thanks @rdww60... also got my Papilio Arcade MegaWing working.. trying eh invaders_papilio_pro_Arcade_MegaWing.xise but seem to be missing components. source/plx_arcade_megawing.ucf build/ipcore_dir/delclk.xco build/ipcore_dir/delclk.xise but I did get pacman_ppro_lx9 to work. still learning and trying things..
