Core generator in Vivado?

Hi, I am working with block memory generator IP in vivado 2014.4. On opening the IP, I can find the options for loading MEM and COE files. But when I go to the IP product guide of the block memory, it says "when using IP integrator, the initialization in BRAM controller mode is done only throught the MEM file, see MEM files of the Data2MEM user guide UG658". So, it means I need MEM file.

 

I found that Core generator can be used to make MEM file.(I need to convert image file to MEM file) I could not find the core generator in Vivado.

Please help how to fix this.

There is no core generator in Vivado. You can use data2mem command to initialize the BRAM contents. For details of data2mem refer the document: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/data2mem.pdf
