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.
I think the only user-acc

As mentioned in an earlier post, I need an asynchonous instead of a synchronous data memory. The design was working with the BRAM, but
the data was delayed by one cycle. So one would expect when adding

You might have good luck buying an inexpensive third-party USB-JTAG cable. However, such cables usually require their own special software, and probably won't work with whatever JTAG software you already have. That could be a disadvantage if your original software has unique features (such as chipscope debugging) that aren't provided in the third-p

Rather than the number of lines, what is more important is the complexity of your design. More the complexity, more the test cases you need. Testing all the possilbe condtions using Modelsim can be very cumbersome. If you write a test bench or multiple test benches to test the various conditions, it would be more convenient and efficient.

I am not sure if your PCB track that carries this signal is good...If possible check with the FPGA pin directly unless if it's ball grid. Or capture using chipscope and trace the signal. I'm sure the glicthes couldbe off the chip if your code is perfect!...

What problems are you getting? Can you provide the output of chipscope? How about the out of the simulation? You're not giving us a lot to work with here. As your code is, its a pain to read. If you are gonna post it in public, add comments so there can be a general understanding.

I don't think that you enter the first process.
what other devices are connected to the same connection? are you using a router?
Does your PC receive the data when you are using the delay? Have you established the connection between FPGA and PC? Is the header (use Wireshark to check this) correct?
these are just some basic things to check before

you can use textio to output to a file. Or just use the waveform viewer of your favourite simulator.
