Implementation & Bit-Stream generation error in Vivado 2014_2

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I am using the example design provided with the TriMAC ethernet core ver 8.2 in Vivado 2014_2. But whenever i try to generate bit-stream for the design targeted at Artix AC701 Board i get the following errors:

 

[Common 17-55] 'set_property' expects at least one object.

 

[Common 17-69] Command failed: This design contains a core for which bitstream generation is not supported:
trimac_fifo_block/trimac_sup_block/tri_mode_ethernet_mac_i (tri_mode_ethernet_mac_v8_2 Version 1)

 

I tried regenerating the core as mentioned in a thread :

But it deosnt work. The error screenshot is attached. Thank you.

Hi,

 

In 2013.3 can you open core customization GUI (double click on the IP in IP catalog) and check the license status? Is it shown as "design linking" or "hardware evaluation"?

Hi,

 

Do you have license for this core TriMAC ethernet core?

 

Open the IP customization GUI and check the license status at bottom as shown below.

If this is shown as "Design linking" license then you will not be able to generate bitstream.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

It shows Design_linking IP license available.

screenshot of license manager is attached. 

What about the first error? it isnt showing which xdc file and line number has the error.

Hi,

 

The first error could be because of incorrect commands given in TCL console or XDC.

 

Right click in "messages" tab and select "discard old messages".

 

The design linking license does not allow bitstream generation. Generate HW evaluation license or purchase license to this core inorder to generate bitstream.

 

Go to http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter/ipevaluation/temac_evaluation.htm and select "generate soft TEMAC license key" as shown below to generate evaluation license

Hi.

 

I had initially tested the Example design in Vivado 13.3. It was generating bit-streams without any error or license requirement. So i checked its license manager. The license of TEMAC there is also IP design linking but i was able to generate the bit-stream & test  on FPGA. 

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Yes. Thank you. i found that the HW Eval license was missing from the licenses. This is possibly the reason that i am unable to genrate bitstream for the design.

 

Thank you.

Another possible problem can be the project name. If project name doesnot follow the conventions described, the IP Cores / moduels may fail to synthesize/implement.
