8.1 System Generator for DSP - Why does System Generator for DSP hang when attempting to netlist a design with the ISE Evaluation version?

Description

Why does System Generator for DSP hang when attempting to netlist a design with the ISE Evaluation version?

Solution

This problem is due to an issue in the ISE script that is called during netlisting.

You can resolve this issue by making changes to the following line in the SgIse.pm file.

This change will allow System Generator for DSP to work with the full version of ISE or the ISE Evaluation version.

From:

Line 51: my @runlines = `${xilinx}/bin/nt/xst -help`;

To:

Line 51: my @runlines = `${xilinx}/bin/nt/xst -help 2>&1`;

The SgIse.pm file is located in:

%SYSGEN%/scripts

%MATLAB%/toolbox/xilinx/sysgen/scripts

The default attribute on the SgIse.pm is Read Only, so you will need to turn this off to save the changes.

You can disable this attribute by performing the following:

1. Right-click on the file and select the Properties.

2. When the Properties dialog appears, uncheck the Read Only box.

3. Click the Apply button to save the change.
