    Hi all. I just bought this board and have been going through the tutorial. I am using Ubuntu and everything has worked well but I can't figure out how to load the .bin file onto the fpga board itself. I also cannot use Wine to use the windows configuration tool.

    I googled around and found this link to a python script that loads it to the board but the link is dead.
    http://svn.numato.cc/listing.php?re...partan3ADev/trunk/tools/configuration/python/

    Does anyone have a copy of the script?

    Don't know if it really matters but I am running ISE 14.7 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

    I've not done much development with the Elbert V2 Board using Linux so I can't provide much assistance. I do know that in order to get it to work you will need to download python 2.7 packages or later and then obtain the script files for the Elbert V2, which are attached.

    I know of one person who tried this but struggled to get things working and had to manually add the python 2.7 packages to his Debian system. It may be fine for Ubuntu with a later version of Python.

    Good luck!

    Hello

    I want to use linux loading script however didn't succeed to load the bin file. Could you please give me some details. For my case

    I connected the elbert v2 board to the pc through usb cable and typed

    sudo python elbertv2.bin ttyACM0 elbertv2.bin

    ttyACM0 is the only port shown when I type

    dmesg | grep tty

    so which part is wrong or what is the correct way I should follow to load my design to the elbert v2 on UBUNTU 16.04 OS??

    thanks in advance...

    Hi Macellan,

    Some screenshots and logs would be very helpful in debugging the issue.

    BTW the command looks incorrect. It should be something like:
    Code:
    sudo python elbertconfig.py /dev/ttyACM0 elbertv2.bin
    Note: Please make sure elbertv2.bin is in same location as the elbertconfig.py file

    -Rohit
