Virtex-6QL Aurora 64B/66B v6.2 - "ERROR:sim - Failed to initialize IP model"


The following erroroccurs when Aurora64B/66B v6.2 is generated from the interface with default parameters for a XQ6VLX240TL-1L FFG1156 device:

"INFO:sim:172 - Generating IP...
Applying current project options...
Finished applying current project options.
ERROR:sim - Error while preparing for IP customization ERROR:sim - Failed to initialize IP model.
ERROR:sim - Failed executing Tcl generator."

Howdo I obtain anAurora64B/66B core forXQ6VLX240TL-1L FFG1156?


This issue is specific to Virtex-6QL devices. The Aurora 64B/66B core can be targeted for XQ6VLX240TL-1L FFG1156 or any other Virtex-6QL device.

To work around the issue, generate an Aurora 64B/66B core targeting XC6VLX240TL-1L FF1156and change thedevice/package attributes in the"XST.SCR" file to XQ6VLX240TL-1L FFG1156 (or to a required Virtex-6QL device). Note that the UCF does not need any modification.

This issueis to be fixed in v7.1 of the core which is scheduled for release in ISE Design Suite 14.1.
