7.1i - Known Issues for IP Cores (DSP, System Logic, Networking, Ethernet, PCI, PCI-X, System I/O)

Description

This Answer Record contains Known Issues for ISE 7.1i regarding various IPs.

Solution


SPI-4.2

SPI-4.2 Core v7.0 and v7.1 will not generate with CORE Generator delivered with ISE 7.1i. The SPI-4.2 v7.1 Core has been removed from the ISE 7.1i CD, but v7.0 still exists in the CORE Generator. Do not use the v7.0 Core available in ISE 7.1i. Use SPI-4.2 Core v7.2, which was released with IP Update #1 for ISE7.1i in May 2005. SPI-4.2 Core v6.2 will not generate properly with CORE Generator delivered with ISE 7.1i. Do not install SPI-4.2 v6.2 files on to ISE 7.1i.



Meanwhile, generating the SPI Core using the ISE 6.3i tool and implementing (NGDBuild, MAP, PAP, BitGen) the design using ISE7.1i is a possible solution (see below):



SPI-4.2 v7.1 (Virtex-4) Static Alignment Core: will work with ISE7.1i

SPI-4.2 v7.1 (Virtex-4) Dynamic Alignment Core: will work with ISE7.1i

SPI-4.2 v6.2 (Virtex-II) Static Alignment Core: will work with ISE7.1i

SPI-4.2 v6.2 (Virtex-II) Dynamic Alignment Core: will NOT work due to incompatible DPA constraint. Meanwhile, please see (Xilinx Answer 21137) if you wish to use ISE 7.1i.





PCI and PCI-X



The PCI and PCI-X Cores will not generate with CORE Generator delivered with ISE 7.1i. The PCI and PCI-X Cores have been removed from the ISE 7.1i CD. The PCI and PCI-X Cores are available through CORE Generator release of IP Update #1 for ISE7.1i in April 2005.

For issues concerning the PCI and PCI-X Cores and 7.1iSP1, refer to (Xilinx Answer 21001).



RapidIO



The RapidIO Core will not generate with CORE Generator delivered with ISE 7.1i.
