Hello FPGA users,
I am thinking about purchasing the Avnet Virtex-II Pro? Development Kit and would like to find out if anyone is using it or has used it recently. I want to make sure I am not missing anything. It seems like it comes with all the tools, but I find it difficult to get a straight/consistant answer sometimes from Avnet. My confusion lies in the PowerPC tools and startup. I want to make sure that the board and tools (ISE 6.1 Foundation and EDK) are sufficient to get going. I don't need an RTOS for my project so I just want to be able to run my code on the PowerPC either from external RAM or internal BRAM.
Confusion is about the BOOT up process and wether I will have to write alot of system level code. Can someone help me out or point me to a document that might clear up my concerns.
I would love to talk with someone that is currently using this product. Please e-mail me.
Thanks in advance, AJ
