Tutorial part II okHostInterfaceCore.ngc

I’m trying to work through the tutorials on your website (I haven’t programmed in an HDL for many years now and am currently brining myself back up to speed). Tutorial 1 was a breeze, however I’ve come unstuck with tutorial 2,

[QUOTE]Now, we need to add the files necessary to implement FrontPanel capability in the FPGA design. These include a Verilog or VHDL file (okLibrary.v) and several pre-synthesized modules (*.ngc). The HDL file needs to be added to the project. The pre-synthesized modules can simply be placed in the project directory; the Xilinx tools will find and use them during the appropriate steps during build.

There is no okHostInterfaceCore.ngc on my computer, the other ones are there but this one isn’t. I have Front panel 3.1.0 installed, Xilinx ISE 12.1 on windows 7. I’m guessing this is to do with version changes to the front panel software, but it has stumped me. I have read both these



but they do not explicitly help me. Can anyone shed some light on either what is wrong with my installation, or how to proceed with the tutorials without the required files.



Hello Nick–

We do need to update the online tutorials with the new procedures. We suggest looking at how the samples are organized since these are best maintained to the latest Xilinx tools.

The documentation in the FrontPanel User’s Guide is also up-to-date.

Hi, I have the same issue. I have front panel 3.1 installed, Xilinx ISE 14.7 on Windows 10. Can you tell me the default directory where this file “okHostInterfaceCore.ngc” should be located. Otherwise, can you provide a separate download where I can get access to this file.



This file is located in the FrontPanelHDL/{device name} folder.
