Unable to make bitfiles for Spartan6 board using the Embedded development kit

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys,

I have been using the Embedded development kit (EDK) and the software development kit (SDK) version 13.4 for a few months now. The older bit files work well, but yesterday, I could not make any good bitfiles for my Spartan6 board. I didn’t change any settings or anything else. When I try to run the program, I am met with the following error on my screen:

JTAG chain configuration
Device ID Code IR Length Part Name
1 0402e093 6 XC6SLX75T
ERROR: Could not detect MDM peripheral on hardware. Please check:
1. If FPGA is configured correctly
2. MDM Core is instantiated in the design

When I launch my software using the new bit files, I get another error on my screen. The screenshot is attached below:

Unexpected error while launching program:

JTAG chain confguration

Device ID Code IR Length PartName

1     0402e093         6 xc6slx75t

Please shed some light on how to resolve the issue. I'll be really thankful, if anyone of you can help me.

Waiting for your views.

Regards and best wishes.

If this is the first time this happened when using the program, try restarting your computer then try it again. If you did not change anything in the application’s settings,

Check it again for any accidental changes that may have applied in the program. If all seems well, try doing a clean installation of the program to restore it to its default configuration and fix any corrupted files that may have developed in the long run. Uninstall Embedded Development Kit [EDK] first then restart your system. After booting, uninstall Software Development Kit [SDK] next then restart your machine again. After this, check your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system.

After the disk check, install Embedded Development Kit [EDK] and Software Development Kit [SDK] one after the other restarting the computer after every installation. Test if you are now able to use the programs.

You may also try checking for an upgrade with any of the applications above to have a much better compatibility.
