Custom Hardware Configuration in XPS

When building a project in XPS, one is able to select Xilinx-provided hardware configuration designs so when you add things like DDR2 memory to an ML510, it knows electrically what pins it can use and generates the appropriate connections in your XPS project. We have a custom board that uses Virtex5 FGPAs and we would like to create a hardware configuration file so customers could load it up in their XPS and when they select memory or other peripherals, they are automatically routed to the correct pins in the custom board.

 

does anything like this exist?

Re: Custom Hardware Configuration in XPS

You have to create custom XBD2 files for your custom board .

Please refer to chapter 10 (page 117) of the following document:

Re: Custom Hardware Configuration in XPS

Hi,

 

you should generate a xbd file along with UCF as reference.

 

$EDK_Install\board\Xilinx\boards\Xilinx_ML510\data

 

Chapter 10 of this document talks about XBD 

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_4/psf_rm.pdf

 

The easier way would be to look at one of the development board XBD, create a back-up and make modifications :)
