5.1.03i COREGen - Cannot integrate COREGen with Mentor HDS or ePD due to an error in the coregen.fin file

Description

Keywords: Mentor, HDS, HDL Designer Series, COREGen, core, Generator, coregen.fin, eProduct, Innoveda, ViewDraw, DxDesigner

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
The COREGen integration with Mentors HDL Designer Series (HDS) and eProduct (ViewDraw) does not work correctly in the 5.1i release with Service Pack 3. The integration requires the coregen.fin file in order to pick up the data for the generated core. However, in the 5.1.03i COREGen, the file is generated with an error as in the following example:

"acc Accumulator 6.0
ERROR
APPLICATION CANCELED"

This prevents the schematic tools from integrating the core.

Solution

You can work around this by creating all cores with the CORE Generator in stand-alone mode.

This issue has been fixed in the COREGen IP Update 2 for ISE 5.2i available at: http://support.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp?update=ip
