6.3 EDK, PLB_EMC v2.00.a, Library Generator - "ERROR:MDT - xget_handle SUBPROPERTY BUS : A NULL handle was provided"


Keywords: XPS, EMC, LibGen

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run Library Generator on a design containing the PLB_EMC v2.00.a core, the following error occurs:

"Running generate for OS'es, Drivers and Libraries ...

ERROR:MDT - xget_handle SUBPROPERTY BUS : A NULL handle was provided

ERROR:MDT - ERROR FROM TCL:- expected integer but got ""

while executing

"xget_handle $baseaddr_handle "SUBPROPERTY" "BUS""

(procedure "xget_addrparam_busif" line 3)

invoked from within

"xget_addrparam_busif $periph_handle $param_name"

(procedure "xget_param_value" line 5)

invoked from within

"xget_param_value $periph $arg"

(procedure "xdefine_include_file" line 37)

The EMC driver cannot be used with the PLB_EMC v2.00.a Core. Change the driver to "Generic" to allow LibGen to complete successfully.
