Problem with ChipScope Pro 6.2

Hi All, I just got myself an evaluation license for ChipScope Pro 6.2. I used the Core Inserter tool to insert the ICON and ILA cores into my design. The first time I used the Pro Analyser to load the configuration file it all went ok. However, I tried to load the same configuration file the next day and now Analyser gives me the following messsage:

COMMAND: configure 1 "C:\my_design_cs.bit" 0 INFO: Found 0 Core Units in the JTAG device Chain

The configuration file hasn't been changed. I have tried multiple times but no luck. Has anybody else had the same problem? Is this some sort of limitation put on ChipScope evaluation version?

Thanks in advance Sudhir

no if the .bit file has the icon-ila in it and the analyzer starst it SHOULD display the core info. you most likely downloaded the wrong .bt file

As far as i know this happens often with the 6 series of chipscope. I havent experienced it with the 7 series. a couple of things which could help is create a new inserter core and then rerun the place and route or just open the chipscope once and then rerun the place and route and so on. Good luck!

Hello Sudhir, I too had this same problem. I followed the info from the Xilinx support site to help me get over this problem.

6.2i ChipScope Pro - XCF00P/Platform Flash in chain gives 0 core units found by ChipScope Analyzer Answer Record: 19578 Family: Software Product Line: FPGA Implementation Part: ChipScope Pro Version: 6.2i Last Modified: 11/23/04 11:15:27 Status: Active Rate This Answer Very Useful Useful Not Useful Click to submit Email this page Email this page Send us feedback Feedback Print Print Version

Problem Description:

Keywords: xcf32p, analyzer, PROM, core, unit, found

Urgency: Standard

General Description: If a XCF08/16/32P is in a JTAG chain, ChipScope cannot initialize the chain as it has no idea of what the instruction register length is. It will try to recognize the device as a XC18V00, but the instruction register is too small (8 bits). The parallel Platform Flash devices are

16 bits.

Solution 1:

To work around this issue, edit the "%XILINX%\ChipScope_Pro_6_2i\data\deviceid.lst" and add the following 2 lines:

C,505,93=XCF00P XCF00P=10

However I did have to change the IR Length field in the "JTAG Chain device order dialog box" to 16 for my Virtex2Pro part to get it working.

Good luck. Anup wrote:
