System Generator for DSP 12.1 - During HDL Netlist generation System Generator fails with "ERROR:Portability:3 - This Xilinx application has run out of memory or has encountered a memory conflict."

Description

During HDL Netlist generation System Generator errors out with the following detail in the log file:

ERROR:Portability:3 - This Xilinx application has run out of memory or has encountered a memory conflict. Current memory usage is 2085100 kb. You can try increasing your system's physical or virtual memory. If you are using a Win32 system, you can increase your application memory from 2GB to 3GB using the /3G switch in your boot.ini file. For more information on this, please refer to Xilinx Answer Record #14932. For technical support on this issue, you can open a WebCase with this project attached at http://www.xilinx.com/support.


Solution

This is due to a known issue with ISE software where it may run out of memory during creation of the ISE project file. You may be able to work around this issue by unchecking "Create Testbench" in the System Generator token parameters.

This issue will be resolved in ISE software 12.2.

A patch is available for ISE softwaRe 12.1 here:
