2.1i CORE Generator - Cannot locate "Mem_init_file_pack.vhd87" and "...pack.vhd93" for the Virtex Block Memory cores.
Keywords: core generator, block ram, block memory, initialization, vhdl, verilog, virtex, single port, dual port
General Description: The datasheets for the Single and Dual Port Block Memory cores refer to "mem_init_file_pack.vhd87" and "mem_init_file_pack.vhd93" files that are located at http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter. The datasheets indicate that these files are needed if you wish to have your behavioral simulator write out an MIF file to replace a pre-existing COE file.
However, the files are not available at the location specified.
Version 1.0.2 and later versions of the Virtex Block Memory cores always write out an MIF file automatically during the module generation process using values specified in an input COE file; therefore, there is no need for these packages any more.
