ILA on GateMateA1-EVB

Hi,

I have one of the GateMate evaluation boards and it runs quite fine, I already got VGA output and a softcore to work.

However, now I wanted to try and run the ILA from Colognechip. I am trying the official blink example.

The ILAcop.py tries to talk to the FPGA over SPI, which is provided by the FTDI chip on the official EVB. I can modify the python so that it flashes the bitstream over the dirtyjtag, but since the ILA wants to talk over the SPI to retreive the samples, I get an error when trying to start the capture.

As far as I see, the SPI on the Olimex board is not connected, at least chip U3 is missing.

Did somebody get the ILA to run? Did you use some cust_gpio_* settings that worked or is there something else that I am missing?

Thanks in advance,
cchndl

I don't have an answer for the ILA issues, but was wondering if you could tell me how you got VGA working? What VGA code did you use?
