3.1i CORE Generator - Reed Solomon Encoder and Decoder cores do not list Spartan-II as a supported device.


Keywords: Reed, Solomon, Encoder, Decoder, RS, RS Decoder, RS Encoder, Reed-Solomon

The 3.1i CORE Generator GUI does not list Spartan-II as a supported device for V1.0 of the Reed-Solomon Encoder and Decoder informational cores.

This is a bug, as these cores actually do support Spartan-II.

The problem exists in both 3x_ip_update2 and 3x_ip_update3.


This known problem will be fixed in the next IP update.

The data sheet correctly indicates that Spartan-II architecture support is available for these two cores

Please See (Xilinx Answer 30176) for a detailed list of LogiCORE Reed Solomon Decoder Release Notes and Known Issues.
