LogiCORE VLYNQ v1.4 - Is the CORDIC Core available for Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 FPGAs?

Description

Keywords: Architecture, Devices, VLYNQ

Is the CORDIC Core available for Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 FPGAs?

The data sheet for the VLYNQ core lists Spartan-6 FPGA as a supported device. I cannot select it when targeting a Spartan-6 device. Why?

Solution

The VLYNQ core has been discontinued and support for Spartan-6 or Virtex-6 FPGAs will not be added.
See the Following PDN:
http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/customer_notices/xcn09023.pdf

The VLYNQ v1.4 Core can be used on a Virtex-6 device by generating the core for a Virtex-5 device and implementing that netlist on a Virtex-6 device.

The VYLNQ v1.4 Core can be used on a Spartan-6 device by generating the core for a Spartan-3/3A DSP device and implementing that netlist on a Spartan-6device.

For a detailed list of LogiCORE VYLNQ Release Notes and Known Issues, see (Xilinx Answer 23507).
