Xilinx MIG 1.6 doesn't launch

Started by Your name October 25, 2006
Hi there,

I've recently installed the Xilinx ISE toolset so that I can play with the 
Memory Interface Generator.  I followed the readme and installed ISE 8.1i, 
8.1i_SP3 and then MIG 1.6.  When I open CORE Generator and select MIG from 
the drop down list nothing happens. I get the "Customise" and "View Data 
Sheet" links but when I click on them nothing happens.

Is there another download that I've missed or is the Xilinx software just 
flaky?

Thanks.

Appologies for the missing information.  I am running on win32 so it's not 
the obvious.

Shareef.

You don't say on what platform your are.
If it's not win32, then it's normal, MIG is only for windows.

If you're on win32, I have no idea then ...

browse where the mig is installed, somewhere deep deep you find some batch files, those start MIG OK, but you may need to modify the .in files to get the projects settings right fromt the coregen gui mig 1.6 doesnt want to start :( Antti

I've found that MiG 1.6 only supports Virtex5. It does support the other families internally (i.e., you can create cores for those families), but if your CoreGen-project is set to something other than V5, MiG won't start up because some GUI-setting suggests MiG is only compatible with V5. I had to start up MiG manually from the installation directory: %XILINX%\coregen\ip\xilinx\other\com\xilinx\ip\mig_v1_6\bin\nt contains batch-scripts to start it up. You might have to create a new one that sets the project to your specific part. cu, Sean

What family are you targeting? I think there is a mistake in mig_v1_6.xml file. If you view it, you can find a following line: <family>virtex5</family> In version 1.5 it is: <family>spartan3 spartan3e virtex4</family> Some time ago I tried to add other families to a 1.6 version .xml file and it worked fine for Spartan3. -- Regards RobertP.
Hi,

Can you verify the following:

1. %xilinx%coregen\ip\xilinx\other\com\xilinx\ip  ------------ This
folder should have a folder mig_v1_6

2. %xilinx%coregen\ip\xilinx\other --------------------------- This
folder should have mig_v1_6.xml file it has all the settings needed by
coregen.

MIG has been working well with Coregen. Make sure to also check the
Xilinx answer record 23787 - it talks about the ISE versions required
for MIG 1.6.

Let us know how this goes.

Thanks,
