MIG 7 Series - Clock input must be connected manually with NO BUFFER option when multiple cores are generated


Version Found: v1.7
Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 45195)

In MIG 7 Series 1.7 and later versions of MIG, when the "NO BUFFER" selection is applied to sys_clk and ref_clk, clocking modifications must be done by the user to connect all clocks properly.


If multiple DDR2/DDR3 are generated within the MIG 7 Series GUI with "NO BUFFER" selected for sys_clk or ref_clk, c0_mmcm_clk will be connected to all clock inputs of the PLL in the user design top module.

Users should modify the code manually to set up the expected clocking architecture. If NO BUFFER is selected, no IBUFG or IBUFGDS will be generated. The user should modify the clocking according to (Xilinx Answer 40603).
