ERROR: Could not detect MDM peripheral on hardware. Please check:

        2. MDM Core is instantiated in the design

How can I fix this issue?

Solution

This is a known issue on the Virtex-7 1140T and the Virtex-7 2000T devices. To work around this issue, install the patch at the end of this answer record.

To install the patch, unzip the file and copy the xmd.exe file into the EDK install directory, similar to the following:

For Windows 32-bit
C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\EDK\bin\nt64\unwrapped

For Windows 64-bit
C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\EDK\bin\nt\unwrapped

For Linux 32-bit
C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\EDK\bin\lin\

For Linux 64-bit
C:\Xilinx\14.5\ISE_DS\EDK\bin\lin64\

For 14.4, the patch also requires an updated version of the "ibSdkHwDb.dll" file to be added to the EDK install directory.

To do this, copy the "libSdkHwDb.dll" file from the relevant location in the ZIP file.

For example:

For Windows 32-bit
Copy from lib/nt to C:\Xilinx\14.4\ISE_DS\EDK\lib\nt

For Windows 64-bit
Copy from lib/nt64 to C:\Xilinx\14.4\ISE_DS\EDK\lib\nt64
