I want to download some example design from www.em.avnet.com/arty, but the link always leads to the homepage of Avnet. I don't know why this happens. Could you send me another link which can directly start the downloading or a zip file of support files? My email address is email@example.com . Thank you.

The www.em.avnet.com/arty link is broken.
This link https://reference.digilentinc.com/doku.php?id=arty works, however the Avnet Arty Materials (Including Out-of-Box demo) link on that page is broken.
At https://products.avnet.com/shop/en/ema/kits-and-tools/development-kits/aes-a7mb-7a35t-g-307445734562... I found the an old copy of the Arty Out-Of-Box GPIO Demo Design (Vivado 2015.2) . This doesn't work well with the current version of Vivado, 2016.4. So if there is no up to date version, perhaps that link should be removed.
It looks like https://reference.digilentinc.com/doku.php?id=arty is the best place to go to get started with programming. But I had a hard time finding this page. The card that comes with ARTY says to go to www.xilinx.com/arty. That page has a "Featured Document" link to ARTY Board User Guide which actually points to the ARTY Reference Manual, which is an overview of the ARTY hardware. It doesn't give any help about programming.
I'll go through the materials at https://reference.digilentinc.com/doku.php?id=arty tomorrow. But my opinion is that the Arty General I/O Demo should be the first item in the list of tutorials. It's always confidence-inspiring to get some LEDs blinking early! :-)
I'd also strongly suggest that there be more pointers to the https://reference.digilentinc.com/doku.php?id=arty page. There is so much documentation that finding the getting started information is like searching for a needle in a haystack.
