4.1i XDL - Config string generated by "xdl -ncd2xdl" only lists one route-thru when more may exist.


Keywords: replicate, duplicate, flop, register, FF, sync, asynchronous, XDL, route-thru, routethru

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When XDL is run with the "-ncd2xdl" switch to generate a netlist description of an NCD, the resulting netlist only contains one route-thru listed in a CLB/Slice configuration string, even in cases where multiple route-thrus existed in the CLB/Slice.

Specifically, this problem was found to affect the accuracy of a Perl script described in (Xilinx Answer 3813), which is used to detect output to output route-thrus in 4K designs.



This problem is fixed in the latest 4.2i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.2i Service Pack 1.


Alternatively, a patch compatible with 4.1i SP3 is available:

For PCs:

For Solaris:

This problem will be fixed in the next major software release following 4.1i.
