Spartan-3 - Where can I get software support files for the XC3S4000 or XC3S5000 devices?

Description

I am using ISE 5.2.02i and I am not able to target the XC3S4000 or XC3S5000 devices. Where can I get software support files for these parts?

Solution

This Answer does not apply to ISE versions 6.1 or later - these devices are automatically included in these versions.

These files contain device support for targeting Spartan-3 XC3S4000 and XC3S5000 in ISE 5.2.03i.

PC

Unzip the files from your Xilinx installation directory to preserve the correct directory structure relative to your %Xilinx directory:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise5_updates/s3_4_5k.zip

Solaris

You must first unzip your download using the command gzip -d s3_4_5k.tar.gz before untarring, and then untar the files from your Xilinx installation directory to preserve the correct directory structure relative to your $Xilinx directory:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise5_updates/s3_4_5k.tar.gz

After installing these files you must re-apply the 5.2i Service Pack 3.
