6.1i ISE - Can Project Navigator interface with ChipScope 5.2i and earlier versions?


Keywords: ChipScope, cdc, version, ISE, PROJNAV, definition, connection

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Will a user be able to use ChipScope version 5.2i or earlier in conjunction with the ISE 6.1i software?


No, with ChipScope 5.2i (or earlier version) installed, creating a ".cdc" file from Project Navigator 6.1i will not be possible. A user will be able to select Project -> New Source -> ChipScope Definition and Connection File. However, after stepping through the New Source Wizard they should receive the following message:

"The version of ChipScope installed on this system does not match the Xilinx ISE version. Please download and install the correct version of ChipScope from http://www.xilinx.com/chipscope."

In some cases with older versions of ChipScope, the version mismatch message above did not correctly appear. However, ChipScope would not open and behave correctly.
