> I have some old chips and in light of the shortages I continually see despite the 52 week lead time thrown around in the summer of 2020, I would like to develop with them. Specifically, I am talking about Spartan 3E parts and would like to know about setting up a stable toolchain with Win10 or 11. This could include Ubunutu 20.04 on WSL2. Does anyone have a decent recipe to develop these chips. My last development of FPGA was on a custom development board and I utilized a make file calling the necessary tools to create the binary from the ISE tools:
you can download the ISE 14.7 Win10 from Xilinx.
Read the installation manual.
It's a Virtual Machine with Ubuntu as the guest OS and the installed ISE14.7 software package.
