LogiCORE Mutliplier Adder v2.0 - Why are the results incorrect when the input for an unsigned A input is less than or equal to 18, and a signed B input is greater than 18?

Description

Why are the results incorrect when the input for an unsigned A input is less than or equal to 18, and a signed B input is greater than 18?

For example:

  • A = Unsigned <= 18-bits (i.e. 17-bits)
  • B = Signed > 18-bits (i.e. 25-bits)

Solution

This is a known issue in the LogiCORE Multiplier Adder v2.0 in ISE 14.2 and earlier, or Vivado 2012.2 Design Suites.

This issue has been resolved in the LogiCORE Multiplier Adder v2.0 in ISE 14.3 and later and Vivado 2012.3 and later.
 
  • New users must either generate the core using ISE 14.3 or later or Vivado 2012.3 or later.
  • Existing users must regenerate their core using ISE 14.3 or later or Vivado 2012.3 or later.
