Design Assistant for PCI Express - How to add a PCI Express cores to Project Navigator?

Description

Can a core for PCI Express be implemented using Project Navigator?

Note: This Answer Record is a part of the Xilinx Solution Center for PCI Express (Xilinx Answer 34536). The Xilinx Solution Center for PCI Express is available to address all questions related to PCIe. Whether you are starting a new design with PCIe or troubleshooting a problem, use the Solution Center for PCIe to guide you to the right information.

Solution

The cores can be implemented using ISE Project Navigator. It is not recommended to add the generated core's xco to an ISE project because it may cause an error similar to this:

ERROR:HDLCompiler:559 - "s6_pcie_v1_2.v" Line 421: Could not find module/primitive <pcie_bram_top_s6>.
Module s6_pcie_v1_2 remains a blackbox, due to errors in its contents
Instead, generate the core in CORE Generator tool and add all of the core's wrapper source code from source directory.
