XEM3050 - RAMtest virtex5 does not support tri-state buffers

I am trying to regenerate the sample RAMtest.

During build, the Xilinx ISE tool reports back that several ok modules can not be implemented as they contain tri-states. Here is a sample of the error log.

ERROR:MapLib:824 - Tri-state buffers are not supported in Virtex5. Block ok2
must be removed from the design.
WARNING:MapLib:35 - Mapper failed to process logical block ep00/ok2. Please
refer to previous error/warning message(s) to identify the problem.

I have tried:
instanciating: okHostInterface_xem5010 in place of okHostInterface in the ramtest.v file.

It seems as if the okLibrary.v file need to be updated or modified to deal with the Virtex5 constraint.

Any thoughts?

@Peter- Can you post a few lines of your HDL that include the instantiation of the okHost and other items?

Also – your post is titled “XEM3050…” but the XEM3050 is not a Virtex-5 device. Are you using the XEM5010?

This is my bad. I am building for a XEM5010, but pulled my example from the XEM3050-Verilog directory.

I have installed the FrontPanel-FC10-3.0.11 version of the FrontPanel.

Not knowing enough about the design of the ok modules, can I get a pointer?

Thx!!

A more general comment is if I can get example code for the XEM5010 for all the sample examples.

Many thank!!

I am looking in the FrontPanel 3.1 release and also see and addenum for the 5010 device.

@Peter-

Yep, that’s where you want to look.

The release info and samples should explain it all.

The FrontPanel3.1 release has what I needed to build a .bit file. Many thanks!!

I’ve also just posted a request for ModelSim 6.4b compatible libraries. This version is the only one currently available from the Xilinx website. I also ask in the post if you could instead create simulator agnostic encrypted verilog models.
