LogiCORE RapidIO v4.1 (Rev 1) - Patch is needed to address v4.1 issues


Serial Rapid IO v4.1 core delivered with ISE IP Update #1, #2, and #3 will require a patch in order to address following issues:

(Xilinx Answer 24966) The CORE Generator window or ISE Project Navigator might close when generating Serial Rapid IO v4.1 due to the missing license file

(Xilinx Answer 24994) The Device ID entered though the GUI is ignored. CRS register will contain "OO" or "0000" as Device ID

(Xilinx Answer 24986) Invalid TTYPE value in the iresp_handler.v file

(Xilinx Answer 24838) The x1 Core is unable to train when connected to x4 Core when targeting Virtex-5 or Virtex-II Pro

These fixes will be rolled in to Serial RapidIO v4.2 Core expected to be shipped with IP Update #1 for ISE 9.2i, which is scheduled for the August/September 2007 timeframe. In the meantime, you must apply this patch every time you install IP Update (#1, #2 or #3) for ISE 9.1i .

See below on how to obtain the patch and how to install it.

See (Xilinx Answer 23850) for other outstanding issues in v4.1 which will not be addressed in this patch.

3. Extract the ZIP/Tar.gz file into your ISE9.1i installation. (Default is: C:/Xilinx)
