Here's the best: Xilinx ISE WebPack v.7.1.i plus service pack 4 for synthesis, programming etc. Stable, fast... best. Available for free from Xilinx website. For simulation use ModelSim XE that is also available for free from the Xilinx website. There is a newer version of ISE - WebPack 8.1i, but it has many many many... bugs, even in the service pack 1 that they have just released. So work on WebPack 7.1i + SP4 and have fun.absm said:Please suggest a best software integrated development tool for xilinx FPGA's
Have you tried to run latest version ? I have. I will not list all the bugs here but... this software is just not working:!: I have tried very simple designs and... it is odiously to work with this software (i mean the latest version). And why do you think they have released SP1 so fast - just immediately after the base version ?VirtualThread said:It is better to use the latest tool from the same vendor. I would recommned using Xilinx ISE 8.1 but don't use its Service Pack1 as it has some bugs.
