Bug Fixes in v8.2

The following issue is resolved in v8.2:

  • The FIFO Generator core and the behavioral models in AXI Streaming mode accept the data during reset (s_aresetn is low).

Known Issues in v8.2

The following are known issues for v8.2:

  • In the FIFO Generator GUI, after importing an XCO file (Independent clock, distributed memory configuration) into a Virtex-4 CORE Generator project, if the FIFO type is changed to "Independent Clocks, Built-in FIFO" in page 1, page 2 does not correctly offer the Read Clock Frequency and Write Clock Frequency options as it should.
  • M_ACLK mapping for the write response and read data channel is incorrect. M_ACLK is mapped to the read side rather than the write (CR617397).
