I'm trying to use MIG for RAM controlling in ISE.
The problem is that I can't use use chipscope with systems where the program is running out of DDR/DDR2. There seems to be errors with running generated vio files using MIG for DDR2. Do you have any solution or any other source which helps me find which changes should I make in the source

Hi every one
I have generated MIG core as a DDR2 controller for Virtex5 FPGA.
I have also generated chipscope core for viewing waveforms.
I have also added these codes to imp-top module:

hi every one
i am a newbie and i have a problem with the chipscope.
i am using "Digilent JTAG USB Cable"
problem is that during debugging i cannot observe any signal names (from my program) in chipscope.
no waveform is observed only lines are shown

1) What is the maximum speed at which we can watch Flip-flop value changing through chipscope ?
I'd say it is directly proportional to your flipflop clock. If you use 300MHz clock, you can watch flipflop value changing at 300MHz rate. No doubt.
But remember, that this is true only for synchronous designs.

chipscope inserts something much like a pre-designed code which based on your requirement, it will be used. Pre-compiled drivers\code for JTAG interface will be available ON-chip. So that when you add chipscope blocks, it can talk with JTAG interface. But frame your question more sharply, will try to reply narrow.

Using trigger in chipscope, can I make multiple triggers, and every run, choosing just one of them to be the active trigger, while disabling the others?
This way I don't need to compile all design when I want to change triggers.
Can it be done?

Can we have two clocks for trigger signals to be monitored on chipscope?
What is the way to monitor multirate data with chipscope? I have a design with an output signal with high decimation (>1000). I want to monitor both the high sample rate signal as well as the decimated signal. Is there any way out as we can add only 1 .cdc into a project.

chipscope Pro analyzer uses the TCP/IP protocol to connect to the cable. This error occurs because the socket specified in the "Server Host Settings" is being used by another application.
To work around this issue, change the socket setting as follows.
1. Open chipscope Analyzer.
2. Select JTAG Chain -> Server Host Setting

As far as I'm aware of, chipscope isn't designed to use other host interface than JTAG. To sample a number of fixed data points and process the data in the FPGA logic fabric internally, you'll need to design a functionally equivalent yourself.

For webpack you can get free license. And for other tools like chipscope, Modelsim XE you can evaluate only. If you format and reinstall it will work upto the duration specified.
Its better to make as a full version to avoid the time limit.

There is another way to probe the internal signals in an FPGA... Vendors like Altera and Xilinx provide built-in signal analyzers like SignalTap and chipscope. You can use these to probe the internal signals during runtime. These tools will output the results as a waveform which can be stored.

If you are referring to the Xilinx/Digilent Spartan-3E Starter Kit, then its USB port is connected only to the FPGA's JTAG configuration/debug port. Unfortunately, Xilinx refuses to provide documentation for their USB protocol, so you have to use Xilinx software, and the only software they provide that can do general-purpose JTAG communication is C

Your question is somewhat unclear.
Do you have the Xilinx/Digilent Spartan 3E Starter Kit?
You said "transmit and receive data", so are you trying to communicate through the board's USB port with a BSCAN macro and scan chain that you've put into the FPGA?
If that's correct, then you want JTAG, not Slave Serial.
