System Generator - Error when importing an XPS project in SysGen


I am attempting to import a PowerPC based system into System Generator using the EDK Processor Block.

I am receiving the following error:

Error: Error copying System Generator pcores into user EDK project.  See the Detailed pane for more detail.

From the Details pane:

The EDK project C:\my_system.xmp does not contain a processor block.  Please add a processor into the project using EDK before running the EDK Import Wizard.

I have verified that the .xmp and .mhs file properly describe a PowerPC processor block.  

How can I resolve this issue?


This is a known issue. 

System Generator can only support a single MicroBlaze based processor block in a design. 

This is further documented as a known issue of the EDK Processor block in the System Generator Reference Guide.
