2.1i COREGEN, DISTRIBUTED MEMORY: Unable to open file for Memory Initialization: MIF file - radix error : <value>

説明

Keywords: coregen, RAM, mif, binary, virtex, rom, distributed, memory, init, single
port, dual port

Urgency: standard

General description:

When trying to generate a Single Port or Dual Port Virtex Block RAM memory core in
the 2.1i release, you may see the following error message if you direct the module to read in
a non-binary MIF initialization file:

Unable to open file for Memory Initialization: MIF file - radix error : AEF1
ERROR: ERROR: Caught general Throw during netlist generation
ERROR: An internal error has occurred. Please call Xilinx support.
ERROR: Sim has a problem implementing the selected core.

ERROR: Errors encountered while generating v_spdramhex256x16
(Distributed_Memory 1.0). No output files have been generated.


The EDIF implementation netlist does not get written.


One possible cause of this error may be that the values in the MIF file are specified in a format
other than binary format--i.e., in hexadecimal or decimal format. According to the Distributed Memory
datasheet, MIF file data must be specified in binary format.


ソリューション

For versions 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 of the Distributed Memory:

If you would like to specify the initialization values in HEX or decimal format,
you can do so by specifying the values as arguments to a
"MEMORY_INITIALIZATION_VECTOR" parameter in a .COE file rather
than in the MIF.

Otherwise, if you are using an MIF file, make sure the MIF file data is
specified in binary format. This should not be confused with the RADIX
option in popup from the "Initial Contents" button, which gives you a choice
of Binary, Decimal, and Hexadecimal formats, as this only applies to the value
you specify in this popup as the "default value".

The value in the "default value" field is the value assigned to a memory location
that is not otherwise assigned within an MIF file.
