mkarlsson Posted January 29, 2014 Report Share Posted January 29, 2014 Or any other Xilinx FPGA board with an FTDI chip with MPSSE-engine connected to the JTAG pins (like Pipistrello but not Mojo or Saturn).This is using the xilinx virtual cable driver. Playtag is written by Patrick Maupin. Steps:1) you need python 2.7 installed. Get it here:http://www.python.org/getit/2) unzip the attached zip file playtag.zip somewhere on your computer3) open a cmd-window and cd to <playtag>\tools\jtag4) connect your Papilo board to the computer5) type xilinx_xvc.py ftdi, this will report the available FTDI ports.You should see the A and B ports of the Papilio board (see image).6) type xilinx_xvc.py ftdi 0, this will start the xilinx virtual cable server on the A port of the Papilo board7) you can now use impact and chipscope etc. by selecting the xilinx_xvc plugin. Use this plugin settings: xilinx_xvc host=localhost:2542 disableversioncheck=true See attached images and zip file.Do a google-search for xilinx_xvc for more info on how to use the virtual cable driver.
