#milkymist IRC log for Thursday, 2013-07-04

ysionneauit's a trap11:06
lekernelgrmbl, another slowtan6 limitation: you can only use max. two dedicated BUFPLLs in each IO bank16:15
lekerneland each HDMI input takes one16:15
lekernelthe SDRAM too16:16
lekerneland no, you can't use the BUFPLL_MCB as an extra one: "The BUFPLL_MCB contains two BUFPLLs within the same bank. As a result, the BUFPLL_MCB and BUFPLL cannot be used at the same time."16:21
lekernelah, no, sdram takes two... so the bank is unusable for anything TMDS16:30
wpwrakmajor pin reassignment ?16:31
lekernelno, I'll just stop trying to have 4x HDMI-in16:32
lekernelyou couldn't do much with them anyway due to lack of memory bandwidth16:32
wpwrakah, i see. not so bad then. just losing the option to input-switch.16:34
lekernelthe ISE shitware works with the other two inputs in banks 2 and 3, except for the usual bitgen bug16:34
lekerneltells me to add "CONFIG VCCAUX=3.3" and gives up even though I double checked it is there16:34
wpwrakit's good to move all the bugs to bitgen. that way, you can experience more synthesis time :)16:35
lekernelat least ISE starts at all. couldn't say the same about the actel or tabula software ...16:47
wpwrakit's a fierce competition for the most unusable software :)16:49
larscthe latest XPS (14.6) just crashes for me when I open projects16:49
wpwrakwhere's the fun in that ? it shouldn't fail terminally before you've wasted a few days on it17:06

lekernelmeh, even for very simple designs bitgen fails with that error17:50
lekernelwell at least now it's easy to reproduce17:50

GitHub185mibuild/master 05bc288 Sebastien Bourdeauducq: Call finalize() after CRG creation17:52
lekernelit doesn't happen when you run bitgen from the GUI18:05
lekernel..neither does it happen when you run the tools with the exact same options as the GUI. now let's find which one is ticking that bug...18:14
lekernelit's incredible how things never work in FPGA software land18:14
larsctime to change that ;)18:29
