Current AMC Firmware

The best way to get the firmware is to download the latest tarball from AMC13PythonSoftware and run the "" script in the src_amc13 directory.

See the page FlashMemory for detailed programming instructions. For versions not listed here, see Wu's directory.

Note that Virtex (T1) and Spartan (T2) versions are tested as pairs, so be sure to update both.

Firmware Versions

Are listed HERE (automatically-generated list of the firmware files posted by Mr Wu.)

NOTE new naming convention for files introduced. AMC13T1v0x000d_6vlx240t.mcs is a T1 board file, hex revision 0x000d, for chip P/N xc6vlx240t. There are two types of AMC13 produced so far. Serial numbers below 16 have LX130T while those 16 and above have LX240T. Be sure to use the correct file.

Backup / Recovery

In addition, as described on the FlashMemory page, there is a header and a backup image in the flash which should not normally need to be programmed. Here are the images for those files.

In case you need to recover an AMC13 with a completely corrupted flash, program the bit file from the table below into the Spartan 6 chip using a Xilinx JTAG cable and Impact software. Then, use AMC13Tool (or equivalently python to program the header, golden, spartan and virtex images.
