8.1i EDK - How do I make the reference design of Spartan-3E Sample Pack work with 8.1?

Description

The reference design (Flashwriter) of Spartan-3E Sample Pack at:

http://www.xilinx.com/products/boards/s3esamplepack/

does not work with EDK 8.1.

What should I modify to make the reference design work with EDK 8.1?

Solution

To make the reference design work with EDK 8.1, there are two things you need to modify:

1. Copy the IP "util_bus_split_v1_00_a" from EDK 7.1 to the pcores directory in your working project directory. The IP "util_bus_split_v1_00_a" can be found in C:\EDK71\hw\XilinxProcessorIPLib\pcores. C:\EDK71 is the directory where you installed EDK 7.1.

2. Open the "flash_params.tcl" file, which is released with the flashwriter design. Change the following line:

set SCRATCH_BASEADDR 0x00000000

to

set SCRATCH_BASEADDR 0x00000028

This answer record is obsolete in EDK 8.2i.
