Solution

1

The 5_2i_innoveda Xilinx interface document describes how to use the eProduct Designer 3.0 with Xilinx 5.2i software tools. This document is available for download at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/innoveda/5_2i_innoveda.zip

The 5_1i_innoveda Xilinx interface document describes how to use the eProduct Designer 2.0 with Xilinx 5.1i software tools. This document is available for download at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/viewlogic/5_1i_innoveda.zip

The interface document was not updated for ISE 6.1i. The information contained in the 5_2i_innoveda Xilinx interface document still applies for use with ISE 6.1i.

The libraries for ViewDraw are being delivered only online at this time. You can obtain them at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise6_updates/innovedalibs.zip

Unzip the zip file in the "%Xilinx%\viewlog" directory.

http://www.xilinx.com/company/press/kits/ise_6/matrix.pdf shows entry tool and the devices supported by each. One important thing to note is that support for newer devices (e.g., Spartan-3) will be the responsibility on the third-party vendor.
Users can still design for newer parts using another family's library, but they will not be able to use any family specific macros.
