Topic: Xilinx tools for Spartan 6
I'm very happily writing this from my Novena, which I intend to use as an FPGA dev board among many other things. However, I've been looking around and can't find an appropriate piece of free (as in beer) Xilinx software which will target the Spartan 6. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? I know there are open source alternatives which claim to be able to generate bitstreams, but I'm wary of those currently, especially since I don't know much about Verilog or FPGAs in general yet.
The free Xilinx SDK I've found so far is ISE WebPack 14.7, which claims to be only able to target three small Artix and Zync chips. Any statements as to the validity of that claim would be really very appreciated!
