8.1i CORE Generator - The Display Core Footprint checkbox is no longer available in an IP core customization GUI

Description

Keywords: resource, utilization, CLB, RAM, I/O, IO, FFs, slice, count, number, size, RPM

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Where is the Display Core Footprint checkbox that triggers a display of the relative placement of a core after it has been generated?

Solution

In ISE 8.1i, the Display Core Footprint feature was replaced with a resource utilization summary. To view the summary, select the generated core in the Generated IP window view and select the Display Resource Utilization (Under Original Settings) option in the Information window.

This change was made because an increasing number of cores could not be properly displayed with the footprint model (e.g. multiple USETs, no RPMs etc.).
