6.3 EDK, BSB - I am unable to access all 8M of SDRAM on an AFX Virtex-II Pro FG456 board


General Description:

When I build a system for the AFX Virtex-II Pro FG456 Proto Board using Base System Builder, which includes an opb_sdram controller, I only have access to the first 2M of SDRAM memory.


The Base System Builder does not include the SDRAM_BankAddr ports on the opb_sdram peripheral. This allows you access to only the first of four banks of SDRAM memory.

If you include the SDRAM_BankAddr as an external port in Add/Edit Cores, you will have access to all four banks of memory in the SDRAM device.
