Microblaze on XUPV5-LX110T: Xflow error

Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to do some research work involving embedded processor on FPGAs; however, I've been running into a ton of issues just with the initial stages of getting anything to work.

 

Board: XUPV5-LX110T

Software: ISE 12.2

References: www.xilinx.com/products/boards/xupv5/base-system-builder.htm http://www.xilinx.com/products/boards/xupv5/design_files_122/BSB_CREATE/xupv5-lx110t_bsb_design_creation.pdf

 

Background: I was originally having issues with constraint errors because I was using the support files from this page http://www.xilinx.com/univ/xupv5-lx110t-bsb.htm, but it turns out that these don't seem to work because I got lots of constraint errors. Lurking around these forums, I found these support files http://www.xilinx.com/products/boards/xupv5/base-system-builder.htm, and these one's actually seem to work (or at least, I'm getting further along in the generate bitstream step from the tutorial above).

 

However, I'm still having issues. I attached the output from when I try to generate the bitstream to use with SDK. Basically, I get past the majority of placing and routing, and then, I seemingly randomly get the following error with little other information.

 

All constraints were met.

INFO:Timing:2761 - N/A entries in the Constraints List may indicate that the   

constraint is not analyzed due to the following: No paths covered by this   

constraint; Other constraints intersect with this constraint; or This   

constraint was disabled by a Path Tracing Control. Please run the Timespec   

Interaction Report (TSI) via command line (trce tsi) or Timing Analyzer GUI.

PAR done!

ERROR:Xflow - par: application received signal 11

ERROR:Xflow:42 - Aborting flow execution...

make: *** [__xps/system_routed] Error 1

Done!

 

I know that the board is a little old, but I'm determined to get this thing working, and your help would be greatly appreciated. If worst comes to worse, I could probably get a different (Virtex-6) board from my professor or change to a different SOC.

Re: Microblaze on XUPV5-LX110T: Xflow error

I don't think this is a fix for the problem, but it's a workaround. I've seen the same error, but if you look closely at it, it says "PAR done." So, you can issue a command to continu the process, assuming PAR is done.

 

Looking at the system.make file, I did the following (from implementation directory):

$ bitgen -w -f ../bitgen.ut <name_of_project>

 

This should get you to the "Bitstream generation is complete." phase.
