Papilio Loader clashes with Bitscope DSO

Recommended Posts

I've noticed if I have my USB Bitscope DSO plugged in, Papilio Loader fails to find the Papilio board. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the Bitscope is internally a serial to USB device. Is there a workaround? Many times it woul be great to be able to update the code on the fpga without shutting down the scope.

James,

 

I will look into this, are you using a DUO or a Papilio?

 

In the meantime, you might look at using xc3sprog which might let you target the device better.

I've got a Papilio One 500k and a Papilio Pro, I think they're a better match for my needs than the Duo, I never really got into the Arduino thing and while learning VHDL is a huge hurdle, in the long run it will give me a lot more flexibility than relying on modules writted by others.

 

Xc3sprog looks promising, I hadn't heard of that yet. That's a nice alternative for anyone wanting to program Xilinx chips without buying the expensive and bulky USB platform cable. Overall the Papilio Loader application works pretty well, the snag I ran into (and covered by that thread) is really the only problem I've had with it.

James,

 

I just made a new release of Papilio Loader that lets you specify the -D option so you can better target your desired board.
