CORE Generator
CORE Generator Overview
The CORE Generator™ system accelerates design time by providing access to highly parameterized Intellectual Properties (IP) for Xilinx® FPGAs and is included in the ISE® Design Suite.
CORE Generator provides a catalog of architecture specific, domain-specific (embedded, connectivity and DSP), and market specific IP (Automotive, Consumer, Mil/Aero, Communications, AVB, etc.). These user-customizable IP functions range in complexity from commonly used functions, such as memories and FIFOs, to system-level building blocks, such as filters and transforms. Using these IP blocks can save days to months of design time. The highly optimized IP allows FPGA designers to focus efforts on building designs quicker while helping bring products to market faster.
The CORE Generator IP catalog provides IP which include:
Building Blocks
  •  Memories and FIFOs
  •  Arithmetic Operators (Adder, Accumulator, Multiplier, Complex Multiplier, etc.)
  •  Floating Point Operators
Debug and Verification
  •  ChipScope™ Pro Integrated Controller
  •  Integrated Logic Analyzer
  •  Virtual Input/Output
FPGA Architecture features
  •  Clocking Wizard
  •  Memory Interface Generator (MIG)
  •  RocketIO™ Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGTs)
  •  System Monitor Wizard
Connectivity
  •  Standard bus interfaces such as PCI™ and PCI-X™
  •  Networking Interfaces such as Ethernet, SPI-4.2, RapidIO, CAN and PCI EXPRESS®
DSP Functions
  •  DDS Compiler, FIR Compiler, FFT, etc.
  •  Forward Error Correction IP such as Reed-Solomon Decoder and Encoder, Viterbi Decoder, etc.
Video and Image Processing
  •  Color-Space Converters
  •  Color Conversion Matrix, Color Filter Array Interpolation, Image Processing Pipeline, etc.
Automotive and Industrial
  •  CAN, Ethernet AVB
Telecommunications
  •  Ten Gigabit Ethernet MAC, Tri-mode Ethernet MAC, etc.
Wireless
  •  LTE Channel Encoder/Decoder, 3GPP Searcher, etc.
  •  CPRI, OBSAI and Serial Rapid IO
Specific IP from the CORE Generator IP catalog can be used in the designer methodology of choice.
  •  For Logic designers using Project Navigator
  •  For DSP algorithm designers using AccelDSP™ and Xilinx System Generator
  •  For Embedded designers using Xilinx Platform Studio (XPS)
