4.1i Virtex-II PAR - TBUFs are placed in conflict with locked TBUFs


Keywords: LOC, locked, TBUF, BUFT, placer, placement, placed

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The placer will sometimes create conflicting TBUF placements if there are locked TBUFs that do not use the first TBUF location in a TBUF cell, and if there is room to fit another TBUF set in the same cell.



This problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 3.


This problem can be avoided by ensuring that the first site in a TBUF cell is used whenever TBUFs are LOC'd. These site are TBUF_XAYB where A is a multiple of 8.
