3.1i Spartan Package Files - Packages are missing no-connect pins, which affects the .pad report.


General Description:  

All Spartan package files are missing two no-connect package pins -- the M1 and PWRDWN pins.  


- The XS30 PQ240 and XS40 PQ240 are missing 8 ground pins.  

- The XS30 BG352 and XS40 BG352 packages have M2 and M1 pins at location NC instead of being no-connect (NC) package pins at the W2 and W3. 


This will lead to an incorrect .pad report from PAR.


This problem is fixed in the latest 3.1i Service Pack, available at:  


The first service pack containing the fix is 3.1i Service Pack 3.
