Re: ISE 14.7 Officially Supports Windows 10!

Found this: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/ug1227-spartan6-vm-windows10.pdf It is indeed an Oracle Virtualbox with ISE 14.7 installed (and licensed for one user) running on an Oracle Linux Virtual Machine with Host-only-Networking mode enabled by default. Accordin...

Re: ISE 14.7 Officially Supports Windows 10!

I ran the installer only to find that Windows 10 compatibility is provided by VirtualBox virtualization. This seems like a bad kludge, rather than providing proper support for Spartan 6 devices on Windows 10. I decided not to proceed with the installation. Oh oh. That doesn't sound right. I'm glad ...

Re: Spartan 7

Artix-7 FPGAs are significantly more powerful than their Spartan-6 equivalents. I agree. No discussion here. They also work with Vivado on Windows 10 and modern Linux distros. Also no discussion here. Given the fact that Xilinx have abandoned development of ISE I think Embedded Micro have to move o...

Re: ISE 14.7 Officially Supports Windows 10!

That's good news! I'll download it tomorrow and give it a try. It's been some days now since it's release. Have yo tried it yet? Do you need to de-install the old ISE before installing the new one? Does you old licence file still work? How can you tell the difference between the old and the new vers...

Re: Spartan 7

We have one in the works. It'll be based on the Artix 7 XC7A35T. ISE is a huge pain especially with all the work-arounds needed to get it working on modern OS's. We should be able to say goodby for good fairly soon. We will likely have an announcement with more info on it by the end of the year. Mm...

Re: HDMI Shield Availability

Man this is taking a while... I talked to our assembler yesterday and they have made it though SMT and are having the headers soldered now. We should have some in hand this week. @embmicro: Is there any news on this front? Did you receive the new shields? When will it be possible to order one? I'm ...

Re: Mojo IDE: Verilog Syntax Checking

Hi, Thanks for letting me know there's still a problem. I'll look into it. Have you been able to look into it? What are your findings? Can you share the details with us? I can't add any projects from Open Cores without this issue being fixed. Macro support is essential for including files. Best rega...
