The purpose of this document is to provide basic instructions on using the “XMC-SLX Engineering Design Kit” with the XMC-SLX Boards. It will focus on programming the FPGA of the XMC-SLX150 using VHDL, but can be easily modified to use with any model of the SLX line. This document also shows how to use the supplied dll files with a MFC application. It is assumed that the user has a working knowledge of Xilinx, VHDL and Visual C++. Note that this document assumes Windows is used as the operating systems. Linux users can follow the same general procedure but be aware that differences exist that are not noted in this document.
