Virtex-II Pro Developer's Kit - BFM Simulation is not available (CoreConnect)

Description

Keywords: V2PDK, BFC, BFM, BFL, CoreConnect, simulation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run a BFM Simulation, the following note is displayed:

"The BFC file is provided as a placeholder for an element of the IBM CoreConnect Toolkit.
The CoreConnect Toolkit is only available to CoreConnect licensees."

Solution

The Virtex-II Pro Developer's Kit integrates seamlessly with the IBM CoreConnect Toolkit. This toolkit is not included with the Developer's Kit, but it is required if bus functional simulation is desired. The toolkit provides a number of features that enhance design productivity and allow you to get the most from the Developer's Kit.

To obtain the IBM CoreConnect Toolkit, you must be a licensee of the IBM CoreConnect Bus Architecture. Licensing CoreConnect gives you access to a wealth of documentation, Bus Functional Models, Hardware IP, and the Toolkit.

Xilinx provides a Web-based licensing mechanism that allows you to obtain the CoreConnect Toolkit from the Xilinx web site. To license CoreConnect, use an Internet browser to access:
