7.1i EDK - How do I add support for Spartan-3E Early Access Support for BitGen?


Keywords: bitgen.ut, generate, error

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use the "bitgen.ut" file generated by EDK to create a bit file, an error occurs.


To generate a bit file for the Spartan-3E Early Access devices, a new switch in BitGen -g es:[0-5] must be used. See (Xilinx Answer 21023).

ISE Service Pack 3 (7.1isp3) now has support for the Spartan-3E, so the BitGen switch is no longer needed.
You can download the latest 7.1i Service Pack at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 7.1i Service Pack 3.
