Xilinx XST

The following steps are necessary to create and compile the mMIPS project to an EDIF file.

1. Launch Cygwin from the start menu or by clicking the desktop icon.

2. Change the path to the directory which contains your mMIPS SystemC source code.

cd /cygdrive/d/mmips/mips/mmips

3. Run xst with the command

xst

4. All verilog files contained in the subdirectory v are uploaded to the server. Next, the files are converted to an EDIF file. On success, the EDIF file 'mmips.edf' is downloaded and stored in the current directory. Furthermore, a complete synthesis report, which includes timing information of the mMIPS, is stored in the file mmips.srp. This file can be opened in a text editor.
