Re: spartan-3e help

Yes you required one configuration PROM .first u download your code to PROM.
by .prm file and then .bit map file to FPGA.
SO that u can have permenent data storage
as PROM is device with non volatile memory and FPGA is a volatil

spartan-3e help

you should synthesize your code in any synthesizer such az leonardo or ISE (is better because its Xilinx Synthesizer) when you create a new project you shoule select your device then add your code in then next page and when the new project has created you synthesize and implement it then in the configuration step connect your board witha cable that name jtag (the circuit of this cable find in internet) to the computer configuer your device and if you have a prom select your .MCS file and program the board.
