5.1i CORE Generator - XST synthesis fails, reporting "ERROR: SimGenerator: Failure of Sim to implement customization parameters core decode_810"
Keywords: COREGen, XST, 8b/10b, Encoder, Decoder, CAM, NGC
General Description: When I attempt to generate an XST-based core (8b/10b Decoder/Encoder, CAM v3) in a project that contains white space in the path or project name, XST synthesis fails and the following errors are reported:
"Elaborating the module... Synthesis failed. ERROR: SimGenerator: Failure of Sim to implement customization parameters core decode_810. ERROR: Did not generate EDIF implementation netlist (.EDN) file for core <decode_810>."
Although the 3.1i, 4.1i, 4.2i, and 5.1i versions of CORE Generator for the PC allow white spaces in the project path and project name, the XST tool (which is running behind CORE Generator) does not.
To avoid these errors, remove any white spaces from the project path and project name.
