Solution

Installation Instructions for Windows Users

1. Download "7_1_0xi_smodels_pc.zip" from:
http://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp

2. Unzip "7_1_0xi_smodels_pc.zip" to the XILINX Installation directory.

NOTE: Replace the "x" with the service pack number.

The Xilinx software installation directory is typically located at "C:\XILINX" if the installation defaults were used. You can verify the location of the Xilinx install by entering the following on the DOS command line:
echo %XILINX%

3. Choose "Yes" when asked to overwrite the files.

Installation Instructions for Linux and Solaris Users

1. Download "7_1_0xi_smodels_<platform>.zip" from:
http://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp

NOTE: The files are OS specific. If you have both Linux and Solaris ISE Installs, you will need to obtain the zip file for each OS you wish to use.

2. Unzip "7_1_0xi_smodels_<platform>.zip" to the XILINX Installation directory.

NOTE: Replace the "x" with the service pack number.

If you have already installed your Xilinx ISE software, the Xilinx installation directory location is the value of the XILINX variable that is defined by your setup script. After sourcing your Xilinx setup script, type the following to determine the location of your Xilinx installation:
echo $XILINX

Once the files have been unarchived, you will need to run CompXLib to compile this SmartModel update.

For instructions on running CompXLib in ISE 7.1i, refer to the Synthesis and Verification Design Guide at:
