hello at everybody
I'm trying to start to do some test with a Xilinx ML605 Evaluation 
Board, making use of a FPGA Virtex 6 core.
I would map a very simple algorithm to fpga at the beginning (like a 
counter for example), but I have some communication problems with the 
board. I don't know what port I can use and how to estabilish the 
Can you help me with some simple examples?
thank you all

A very unspecific question. Maybe just take a look in an actual 
FPGA-Book e.g. "VHDL 101: Everything you need to know to get started" by 
William Kafig.
Or you can try some delivered examples...

sorry I will try to specify my problem
I have done the verification of the board's functionality as reported in 
"Getting Started with the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA ML605 Evaluation Kit" 
(pag 1 to 27) but I didn't test the board by PCI Express because I have 
a laptop.
Now I would know if I can map and synthetize a simple project (I am able 
to create it in vhdl by myself) by the JTAG Cable Connector. Have I 
install some driver or somthing like that to estabilish the connection?
I've used a spartan 3a fpga and I had not problem to synthetize and map 
a simple project with the usb cable and the ISE design tool but with 
this board I don't succeed.

Thanks a lot for the reply.
