PlanAhead - Architecture Wizards are not available in the IP Catalog

Description

I would like to use one of the Architecture Wizards to create a clocking modules (e.g. DCM) for my PlanAhead project. However, I do not see any clocking related IP in the PlanAhead IP Catalog. Are the Architecture Wizards supported in PlanAhead tool?

Solution

No, the Architecture Wizards are not supported through PlanAhead tool.

For newer device families (Spartan-6 FPGA and later) the Clocking Wizard (under FPGA Features and Design/Clocking) will cover most of the functionality provided by the Architecture Wizards.

The new Clocking Wizards do not support device families older than the Spartan-6 FPGA. To use the Architecture Wizards for these older devices, a user will need to run CORE Generator outside of the PlanAhead tool, generate the desired IP core, and then add the generated source to the PlanAhead project.
