I'm very new to FPGAs and trying to get a simple program to download to my Xylo-EM board. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and I've installed cyusb_linux. When I run cyusb_linux, it recognizes the board. I compiled a simple program to make an LED blink as a .hexout file using Quartus and I think it's correct, but I can't get it to run. I can't get Quartus to find my board, so I'm trying to download it to external RAM in cyusb_linux. It will download, but it doesn't do anything. Are these files even compatible? What am I missing here?
Thanks, that would explain why I was having so much trouble. Now I'm trying to configure the FPGA using Windows Vista. I've done everything up to page 10 in that pdf and it's working so far. I have the driver configured and I see the board when I run USB Console. Then on p.11 it mentions running "FPGAconf". I've looked all around and I don't see that program. Is that something from KNJN that should have come with my board?
