1.Introduction

waxwingminiwithcarrier-intro

Waxwing Carrier Board is a helpful product to evaluate and work with Waxwing Spartan 6 Mini Module. Waxwing is an easy to use FPGA module featuring Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA with high density connectors for external IO interface. The carrier board makes it easy to access the IOs of the FPGA without the hassles of working with high density connectors. On the carrier board IOs are broken out in to 100mil standard headers for easy access. The carrier board also provides easy access to JATAG signals on a standard Xilinx Platform Cable compatible header. Customization services available for OEM customers. Please contact us for more details. For more details about Waxwing Mini Module, please see product page at www.numato.com.

Board features

  • Three 2×6 pin 100mil expansion headers
  • On board voltage regulator
  • JTAG Connector for configuration
  • LED for power indication

3.Configuring Waxwing Using JTAG

Waxwing Spartan6 module Carrier features an on-board JTAG connector which facilitates easy reprogramming of SRAM and on-board SPI flash through JTAG programmer like “XILINX Platform-cable usb”. Programming Waxwing using JTAG requires “XILINX ISE iMPACT” software which is bundled with XILINX ISE Design Suite. To program the SPI flash we need a “.mcs” file which needs to be generated from the “.bit” file. Steps for generating “.mcs” file are as below. Programming FPGA SRAM does not require a “.mcs” file to be generated.

Generating “.mcs” file for Waxwing

Step 1: Open ISE iMPACT. Click on “Create PROM file(PROM file formatter)”. In the dialog box, select “Configure Single FPGA” in storage device type. Then click on the green arrow on the right side.

Step 2: Select 128M in Storage Device (bits).Now click on “Add Storage Device”, then the green arrow on the right side.

Step 3: Set an output file name and the output file location (the “.mcs” file will be generated at this location which will be required later for programming the FPGA), then click OK twice, then select the “.bit” file we already generated then click Open and click NO when it prompts to add another device file.

Step 4: Double click on “Generate File”. “Generate Succeeded” will be displayed as shown in fig below if the “.mcs” the file is generated successfully.

4.Programming FPGA Using ISE iMPACT

Step 1: Open ISE iMPACT. Click on “Boundary Scan” in the iMPACT flows window on the left top corner. Then right click on the window panel on the right. Select “Initialize Chain”.

Step 2: If the device is detected properly you will get a pop up window as shown below, Click OK. Then right click on the SPI/BPI (next to the black arrow in the below fig.), select Add SPI/BPI Flash.

Step 3: Select the “.mcs” file we already created and click OK. Now choose “” in the dialogue box appeared, then click OK.

Step 4: Click on “Flash”, Double Click on Program, select OK. If the programming is successful, a confirmation message will be displayed.
