LogiCORE PCI-X - Does the PCI-X Core support self-configuration?

Description

Does the PCI-X Core support self-configuration accesses? In other words, is there a mechanism such that the user application can configure the core from the user application interface?

Solution

No this is not supported by the PCI-X Core.

The version 5 series core (Virtex-4) provides a method through the configuration file to pre-configure BAR0 and BAR1 with an address prior to power-up. See the User Guide for more information.

The version 6 series core (Virtex-5) does provide a way to do this.
