9.1 Incremental Design, LogiCORE PCI/PCI-X - Are the LogiCORE PCI and PCI-X supported in the Incremental Design flow?

Description

Are the LogiCORE PCI and PCI-X cores supported in the Incremental Design flow?

Solution


The LogiCORE PCI and PCI-X are not supported in Incremental Design. This is because of the cores' use of -gm exact guide mode, rather than -gm incremental guide mode.



Incremental Design must guide the unchanged Logic using -gm incremental, while the PCI Core must guide certain nets using -gm exact. Running two guide modes simultaneously is not supported in the software at this time. PCI and PCI-X LogiCORE support are planned for a future release.
