11.1 EDK, ppc440mc_ddr2 - Memory failures occur when using a burst length of 8


When using the ppc440mc_ddr2 core with a burst length of 8, the tWTR timing requirement is violated, causing older or invalid results to be returned. How do I resolve this issue?


To work around this issue, set a burst length of 4: 


and adjust the relevant burst length on the PPC440 instance via the C_PPC440MC_CONTROL parameter. 


A patch is also available to resolve this issue. To use the patch: 

-Download from:
-Extract to project /pcores directory. 

-Project->Rescan User Repositories 

-Change ppc440mc_ddr2 version in MHS to match EDK version: 

--v2.00.c for 10.1.3 

--v3.00.a for 11.4 


This issue is planned to be fixed starting with EDK 12.1.
