Hello

I am new to this forum and I need a help about this project "software radio using warp fpga board v2.2" I have started reading the documentation on the board manufacturer site :Mango Communications | WARP MIMO Kit v2, but still I don't understand the programming part after downloading the xilinx studio IDE, the software radio must be able to use MIMO technology. Please I will be glad if I can get a guideline on how to start the programming part..thanks :cool:

Thanks for the info, I think I will go through the links and see if they help but I am meant to programme in xilinx environment, if you get something close to how to programme on xilinx it will be highly appreciated...

The virtex-4 on the board has to be programmed with a bitstream of your design. Usually one makes such a design in either verilog or vhdl. Hence the links...

Doesn't really matter if you use a xilinx or altera or whatever. The need for picking a language remains the same.

Also, doesn't the vendor of this board provide some example projects?
