MIG 7 Series - Notification when Modifying Default MIG Parameters for Artix-7 or Spartan-7 Devices with DDR3, DDR3L, or LPDDR2 Interfaces


Version Found: MIG 7 Series v3.0

Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 54025)

When adding the Memory Interface Generator (MIG 7 Series) IP to a Spartan-7 or Artix-7 based design you will see a notification message underneath the Clock Period field in the Controller Options of the MIG GUI:

To achieve optimum resource utilization maintain the default controller options given by the tool. See AR#69313 for more information.


In order to make the most efficient use of Artix-7 and Spartan-7 device resources, the MIG IP was optimized for certain controller options for LPDDR2, DDR3, and DDR3L based interfaces.

The interface rate is optimized up to 667Mbp/s (333MHz) and operating at higher data rates will cause a comparatively large increase in resource utilization.

Devices with a maximum memory interface clock rate less than 333MHz can operate up to their maximum value without any additional penalty.

The MIG IP is also optimized for component interfaces, a 2:1 PHY to controller clock ratio, strict command ordering, and the number of bank machines on a per device basis.

Using the default settings in the Controller Options page of the MIG customization GUI typically results in a 30% LUT saving when compared to designs that do not use the default settings.
