When I open the parameterization dialog for the CIC Compiler, there is an option to use DSP48 slices, but my target device does not contain any DSP48 slices.
This is a known issue with the CIC Compiler GUI. If DSP48 slices are specified for generation in a CORE Generator project which is targeting a device that does not contain any DSP48 slices, this option will be ignored and the CIC Compiler will be generated using the available fabric primitives.
This will be resolved in a future CIC Compiler release.
