5.1i CORE Generator - How do I generate SelectRAM and Block RAM using CORE Generator?

Description


General Description:

Which CORE Generator modules correspond to SelectRAM and Block RAM?

Solution


SelectRAM:



SelectRAM can be generated using the Distributed Memory module in the CORE Generator. The Distributed Memory module can be found under:



Storage and Memory Elements -> RAMs & ROMs -> Distributed Memory.





Block RAM:



Block RAM can be generated using the Dual-Port Block Memory or Single-Port Block Memory modules in CORE Generator. These modules are also available under:



Storage Elements & Memories -> RAMs & ROMs.



NOTE: Single-Port Block RAM and Dual-Port Block RAM v2_0 are only for use with the Virtex-II family; these cores were made obsolete in the 4.1i software. Instead, please use the v3_0 or newer versions of Block Memory.
