Default Re: Spartan 3A Starter Kit Multiboot Demo Config 4 Display Problem

Hi Jim,

I don't usually look at the message headers, because it plays no role in my
deciding to answer a question. Maybe Bryan does work with/for Xilinx! In
any case, Bryan, I hope I answered your question.

You can get a working DDR2 interface from MIG 1.7 specifically for the
Spartan-3A Starter Kit. There's also a working design derived from that in
the board test design that is posted on the Spartan-3A Starter Kit reference
design page. I think what some previous posters wanted was more than
"working", rather a "stress test" or something that really demonstrates the
bandwidth of the memory interface. I agree that such a demo or reference
design would have value. Do I have any comments/release schedules to share?
No, sorry.
