Thank you for purchasing the Xilinx XC9572XL Development board.
Here is a simple introduction to get your board ready to be used:
Download a copy cof the Xilinx IDE from
You need to get an account to to download the software.
Xilinx suggest to use always the latest version but I believe you should use the one released toghether
with your operating system. Windows 7 and ISE 13 work fine. This table
could be useful to orient the choice. If I found a better list I will add it to this file.
If you don't have already buy a XILINX Platform Cable USB. Namely, the interface that let you load the jedec files
from the IDE through the imPACT software to your Board. You can find many cheap ones in ebay.
Connect the board to a 5V DC source and the Platform Cable to the board using the 10 pin flat cable.
The LED should be blinking green since the board is preprogrammed to do so.
Load your own schematic, you can modify the schematic uploaded. To do this we need to open a Project and add the schematic file here available for download.
Try to get to this page Hit "Implement design" and then at the end of the syntesis process
"Configure target device". Impact program will come up ad you will be able to connect the board and download the jed
file just produced.
