MIG 3.92 Virtex-6 DDR3 - How to add MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6 K1 into the MIG supported device list in Coregen

Description

Micron are moving SODIMM part number MT4JSF12864HZ-1G4 D1 to end of life.  

The part recommended by Micron for new designs as a replacement is MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6 K1.

MIG does not show this new device in the list of supported devices.  

How can I add support for this device in the MIG tool?

Solution

There is a .xml file that defines the supported devices.

You will need to add this device to the .xml file and create another .xml file to define the characteristics of MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.
 
Here is the flow to add the device.

  1. In any Coregen project, create MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6 in the MIG tool according to the device's data sheet.
    Name the device as MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.
    MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.xml will be generated in the Coregen projects directory.
     
  2. Find %XILINX%\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\coregen\ip\xilinx\other\com\xilinx\ip\mig_v3_92\data\mem_tlib\mem_parts.xml.
    Add the following words to the Virtex-6 DDR3 SODIMM part:
     
    <Info PartNumber ="MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6" MemoryWidth="16" type = "Single Rank SODIMM" clockingType="Direct_clocking" fmax="800" fmin="303" tmax="3300" tmin="1250" MappedParts = "MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6" supportedTypes = "MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6"></Info>
  3. Place MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.xml  in %XILINX%\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\coregen\ip\xilinx\other\com\xilinx\ip\mig_v3_92\data\mem_tlib\ddr3_sdram\sodimms.
     
  4. Open Coregen and the device will be in the list.

%XILINX% here refers to the ISE installation directory.

mem_parts.xml and MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.xml are attached.

Replace mem_parts.xml with the attached mem_parts.xml and place MT4KTF12864HZ-1G6.xml in the directory in step 3.
