Resolved Issues

ISE Design Suite

    • (Xilinx Answer 47919) - Example design simulation fails when LCSBA is enabled and assigned it to a specific address
    • (Xilinx Answer 50139) - 16-bit Device ID width not supported
    • Synchronized registers in the statistics gatherer utility in the example design
    • Timing improvements through out the LOG and PHY layers

Vivado Design Suite

    • (Xilinx Answer 47411) - Malformed SRIO Synthesis Netlist when Hierarchy is set to 'rebuilt'
    • (Xilinx Answer 47744) - IDLE2 Mode Not Supported
    • (Xilinx Answer 47919) - Example design simulation fails when LCSBA is enabled and assigned to a specific address
    • (Xilinx Answer 50139) - 16-bit Device ID width not supported
    • Synchronized registers in the statistics gatherer utility in the example design
    • Timing improvements through out the LOG and PHY layers

Known Issues

ISE Design Suite

    • When the ChipScope tool is enabled for the example design, timing might not be met during the implementation process.
    • (Xilinx Answer 50831) - Simulation failure under some specific configuration
    • (Xilinx Answer 50675) - 7 Series GTX Wrapper Attributes Update
    • (Xilinx Answer 50883) - Implementationmayfail with slack violation timing error
    • (Xilinx Answer 50889) - Device ID is set to 8 bits even though 16 bit value is selected in the GUI
    • (Xilinx Answer 53326) - Reading back the DeviceID always returns 0xFF instead of the value set in the Coregen GUI

Vivado Design Suite

    • Hardware validation has not been performed. This release is a design tools release only, and should only be used for implementation and simulation analysis.
    • ChipScope tool support has not been added under the Vivado design tools flow.
    • (Xilinx Answer 50830) - CRITICALWARNING:[Common 17-54] The object 'port' does not have a property 'IOSTANDARD'
    • (Xilinx Answer 50831) - Simulation failure under some specific configuration
    • (Xilinx Answer 50832) - XSIM flow Support
    • (Xilinx Answer 50675) - 7 Series GTX Wrapper Attributes Update
    • (Xilinx Answer 50889) - Device ID is set to 8 bits even though 16-bit value is selected in the GUI
    • (Xilinx Answer 53326) - Reading back the DeviceID always returns 0xFF instead of the value set in the Coregen GUI

Other Information

    • Virtex-6, Kintex-7, Virtex-7 have all been validated with IES and GES silicon
      For more information on hardware validation, please contact Xilinx Technical Support by opening a WebCase at: http://www.xilinx.com/support/clearexpress/websupport.htm
