LogiCORE Reed-Solomon Encoder v7.0 - Why do the RS Encoder cores (v7.0) not support Spartan-6 FPGA in 12.1?

Description

Why do the Reed-Solomon Encoder cores (v7.0) not support Spartan-6 FPGA in ISE software 12.1?

Solution

At present, the Reed Solomon Encoder is not supported in Spartan-6 FPGA in ISE software 12.1. This is due to the block RAM issue as outlined in (Xilinx Answer 34541), Spartan-6 Block RAM Design Advisory - 9K block RAM Simple Dual Port (SDP) Port Width Restriction.

To create a core in ISE software 12.1 for Spartan-6 FPGA, please see (Xilinx Answer 35717).
