Hello.

You should consult MIG (Memory Interface Generator) datasheet to start off with DDR. A lot of material is present on Xilinx site. MIG is especially used for DDR and DDR2 interfaces.

Best of luck.

Hello.

MIG is very much there in my 9.2 version service pack 4.

When you open croegen and go for create new project then under the list of various controllers MIG is mentioned under "Memories and Storage Elements".

Best of luck.

For 9.2 you may need to get the corresponding IP Update in order to see MIG.  I don't quite recall exactly when MIG was integrated into the downloads.  I do recommend you update your ISE if at all possible.  There have been many enhancements and bug fixes since 9.2.  11.2 is the current release.

Hello.

You need to have IP update 2 installed with ISE 9.2i (SP4) in order to use MIG. I doubt whether you will get updates at present for 9.2 because the latest version in the market is 11.2. For 11.2 you will get everything from XILINX site. In order to enquire about old updates you open a webcase with xilinx. Those guys will help you out.

Best of luck.
