Sorry, I apologize. I posted this elsewhere in the forums, but it would seem like this section is more suitable for this type of question. I posted it under "Design Tools" since I figured that the question is more aimed towards the tools.
As the subject line indicates, I want to convert a bit-file into a coe file to initialize BRAM with the bitstream. I found a similar question at http://forums.xilinx.com/t5/System-Logic/How-to-co
In iMPACT (I'm using 13.3), I select create PROM file, but what is the most suitable storage target so select? I see most targets allow the option of creating the .hex file. I was thinking of selecting the Generic Parallel PROM, but maybe the Xilinx Flash/PROM is better? Does this even matter? I was assuming it did.
Can anyone provide some insight towards my methodology? Will this work? Is there a better way to convert a .bit to .coe? If not, will I be able to use iMPACT to convert my .bit to .hex and then to use MAKEXCOE to convert the .hex to .coe?
Thanks in advance!
