which version PCI LogiCore for XC4000E?

Started by SimonX January 30, 2005
Which version of Xilinx Foundation has contained PCI LogiCore for
XC4000E (= version 1.2)? I have installed Foundation 4.1i, but there
is PCI 32b/33MHz support for Virtex only. Thank You very very much for
answere.
Hi,

The v1.2 PCI LogiCORE was shipped on CD-ROM, and for a
time was available for download (but no longer).  The
Xilinx PCI cores have not traditionally been part of the
implementation tools until just recently when they were
made available through Core Generator.  The specific
version you are looking for will only work with XACT6,
which is substantially older than Foundation 4.1i.

I'm assuming you asked this question because you have
some XC4000E hardware sitting around and want to use it.
My advice would be to sell it on eBay and use the money
to buy one of the inexpensive boards from a Xilinx
distributor or the FPGA4FUN website.  You'll then need
to install ISE6 (WebPack will do...) and get an eval
copy of the v3.0 PCI LogiCORE.

Or maybe just post again, asking for a cracked copy.  :)

Good luck,
Eric
