8.1i ISE / CORE Generator - PCI is not an available core type when using the Project Navigator New Source wizard for IP


Keywords: COREGen, bus, standard, protocol

When running CORE Generator through the Project Navigator GUI, it is not possible to generate the PCI IP cores. Selecting the PCI 32-bit Core through Project Navigator New Source Wizard brings up the following informational message:

"Selected Core, PCI 32-bit Interface, can only be customized by
running Xilinx CORE Generator.

Click on Manage Cores in ISE or run Core Generator as a standalone

View core data sheet for more information."

The PCI 64-bit Interface and the PCI-X/PCI 64-bit Interface issue similar messages.


It is not possible to implement the PCI IP Core with CORE Generator invoked from Project Navigator New Source Wizard. CORE Generator can be opened from Project Navigator using the Manage Cores process. However, the Project Navigator project must already contain at least one IP core before the Manage Cores process is available.

To generate a PCI IP Core, you must run CORE Generator in standalone mode. Generate the PCI IP Core, and then follow the implementation instructions as described in the Implementation Guide that is supplied in the DOCS directory of the PCI project directory.
