some updates needed


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


3.5 years ago when I was between jobs, I purchased the papilio one + logic wing and tough myself VHDL basics. it was good enough for me to get two job offers!

Than I started the new logic design engineer job and put it aside. that job was (and still is) about high level synthesis - writing CPP code that later compiles and generates verilog code.

So not much coding in HDL was done by me for the last 3 years. 

That brings me to my point: Now that I want to take of the rust and code some HDL (this time I aim for verilog) in my free time, I discover that it is not working in the latest environments:

- windows 10 (64b) with ISE --> this I overcome(I think) from older thread reading

-windows 10 (64b)  with Papilio loader - looks like the application is not talking with the USB driver, or maybe it is the USB driver (jungo windriver?) which is not updated.

I think that for me and for new people who would like to get to FPGA (or HDL learning) some documentation\scripting updates are needed

The ISE Issue is well known, but as you have already found out, there are workarounds for that. 

On my Windows 10 machines I have no Issues with Papilio loader and papilio-prog. Do you have downloaded the latest version?

Does the USB Serial Port of the Papilio appear as com port in Windows?

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your reply. I have downloaded the latest I found in the papilio website: "Papilio-Loader-V2.8"

I see that it is an application ready to use, not installing anything, just opens JAVA gui.

in device manager I don't see the Papilio as COM port...

I suspect the Jungo win-driver, it is being installed within the XILINX web-pack, is it good for Windows10?

oops, my bad, I actually see two new COM ports when connecting Papilio, (see image)

Now, the next obstacle is that the *.bit file of the project not getting the papilio icon, and when I try to give papilio the path for this file and burn the FPGA, nothing happens..
