MicroBlaze Processor Development Kit Spartan-3E 1600E Edition - BSB does not have the ability to instantiate all 8 LEDs

Description

In the MicroBlaze ProcessorDevelopment Kit Spartan-3E 1600E Edition User Guide (UG257), it is stated that there is a "bank of eight individual surface-mount LEDs". However, when I use BSB in Xilinx Platform Studio, I cannot instantiate all eight LEDs; Is this expected?

Solution

While there is a bank of eight individual LEDs on the MicroBlaze Processor Development Kit Spartan-3E 1600E Edition, the distributed XPS information for this board does not have a grouping for alleight at once. Instead there exists the capability to have a group ofsix LEDs, or individual LEDs.

When using the Xilinx Base System Builder (BSB) from the Embedded Design Kit, these LEDs can be instantiated as a group of six, or individually. Base System Builder does not have the ability to instantiate alleight LEDs at once.
