LogiCORE IP OBSAI v5.1 - What files need to be changed in ISE Design Suite 13.4 to support General Engineering Silicon (GES) for Kintex-7 devices?

Description

What files need to be changed in ISE Design Suite 13.4 (for the LogiCORE IP OBSAI v5.1) to support General Engineering Silicon (GES) for Kintex-7 devices?

Solution

The OBSAI v5.1 core, as delivered from the CORE Generator tool, will not directly support operation on General Engineering Sample (GES) Kintex-7 devices.

To enable operation on GES devices, it is necessary to replace the source code wrapper files around the GTXE1 Transceiver.

This answer record provides updated source code files and instructions for applying these updates to a generated OBSAI core.

Themodified source files for theOBSAI v5.1 can be downloaded at:
