Virtex-6 FPGA System Monitor - When will CORE Generator support System Monitor for Virtex-6 FPGA?


Support for the Virtex-6 FPGA System Monitor will be added in the 12.1 timeframe.

Can a customer use the Virtex-5 FPGA core?


Currently, CORE Generator does not support the System Monitor core for the Virtex-6 FPGA, but the System Monitor is a supported block.

The user can use the Virtex-5 FPGA System Monitor core in their Virtex-6 FPGA design.

To create the Virtex-5 FPGA System Monitor core, open CORE Generator standalone

Go to Start -> Programs -> Xilinx ISE Design Suite -> ISE -> Accessories -> CoreGen

Create a new CORE Generator project and select any Virtex-5 FPGA part

Ensure the All IP Versions check box is clicked

Expand FPGA Features and Design

Select System Monitor Wizard and customize as required

CORE Generator will generate HDL (.vhd, .v) that can be used to instantiate the System Monitor in the Virtex-6 FPGA design

See Xilinx Answer 24512 for Known issues with the System Monitor Wizard
