10.1/11.x ChipScope Pro Analyzer - ILA tool in FPGA Editor cannot find my ChipScope Pro Analyzer Core

Description

The FPGA Editor tool cannot find the ChipScope Pro Analyzer core generated using the CORE Generator tool. When I use the ILA tool, the following message occurs:

"Your design does not have an ILA (Integrated Logic Analyzer) core or it could not be found for some reason..."

Is the core inserted in my design correctly?

Solution

For 11.x Users

This can occur when you read the core netlists into a third party synthesis tool such as Synplify. In this case, some net names are modified preventing FPGA Editor from detecting the core. The workaround is to ensure that the cores are read in by NGCbuild post synthesis instead of by the no-Xilinx Synthesis tool.

For 10.1 Users

This might not be a problem with the ILA core. If the core is generated and inserted correctly, ChipScope can detect it. FPGA Editor does not find ChipScope ILA cores generated by the ISE 10.1 software CORE Generator tool.

This issue is resolved in ISE 10.1 Service Pack 1.
