8.2i EDK - Flashwriter is not working on my Virtex-5 system

Description

When I try to write to my CFI compliant flash in a Virtex-5 system, the flashwriter does not work. What could be the problem?

Solution

One problem has been found with the hardware multiplier in the Virtex-5 devices which could affect any IP that uses the hardware multiplier (or rather the DSP48E slice). 

 

Please refer to (Xilinx Answer 24006)

 

If you are having problems with writing to the flash device on the ML501 board, please refer to (Xilinx answer 24175).
