OPB 10/100 Ethernet MAC v1.00m - Spartan-3 support

Description

Keywords: 10/100, EMAC, Ethernet, OPB, processor, Spartan-3

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
Does the OPB 10/100 Ethernet MAC v1.00m support Spartan-3 devices, and if so, how do I target the core to this architecture?

Solution

NOTE: In the data sheet that was released with EDK v3.2 SP2, the Spartan-3 support information was inadvertently omitted; however, Spartan-3 is supported in version v1.00m of this core.

You can target the OPB 10/100 Ethernet MAC v1.00m shipped with EDK v3.2 SP2 for Spartan-3 devices as follows:

1. In XPS, target the project to Spartan-3.
2. In Processor COREGen:
a. When generating the core, target the project to either Virtex-II or Virtex-II Pro.
b. Generate the core.
c. Re-target to Spartan-3 during the design implementation step.
