Is there a SmartModel update for ISE 8.1?

Solution

1

There are problems with the current SmartModel version. New models will be released with the next version of ISE, scheduled for release in July 2006. Until the new models are released, please use the models from this Answer Record. Refer to the other resolutions in this Answer for instructions on installing the patch on each operating system.

The problems fixed by these models are as follows:
- RocketIO Smart Model - TX serial pins skewed in simulation
- Analog CDR(RXRECLK) outputs incorrect clock in the absence of RX data
- Virtex-4 MGT SmartModel Update needed for fixed SONET Alignment in CES4 (refer to User Guide v 3.0)
- DRP writes to MGT-B did not affect TX PLL properly
- Serial Loopback fails
