LogiCORE SPI-3 (POS-PHY L3) v3.2 - Does the PL3 (SPI-3) Link Layer Core v3.2 support Virtex-4?


Does the PL3 (SPI-3) Link Layer Core v3.2 support Virtex-4 devices?


The SPI-3 v3.2 Link Layer Core does support Virtex-4. This is reflected in the SPI-3 IP Lounge, as well as the latest version of the data sheet. 


You can target Virtex-4 by using the provided Virtex-II Pro files with the following modification to the build script: 


in the pl3_link_v3_2/virtex2/implement/ directory: 

cp build_pl3_v2p to build_pl3_v4 


open build_pl3_v4 using a text editor, and adjust the NGDBuild command line to target the desired Virtex-4 device. 


The Virtex-II Pro UCF file (pl3_link_top_v2p.ucf) can be used for the Virtex-4 implementation.
