4.2i Project Navigator - Spectrum is not available for Spartan-IIE devices

Description

Keywords: Spectrum, Leonardo, ISE, ProjNav, Spartan-IIE, Spartan2e

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Spectrum flows are not available in ISE when the device family is set to "Spartan-IIE". When LeonardoSpectrum 2002a_49 or later is used, the Xilinx Spartan-IIE is available when it is run stand-alone mode; Spectrum is also available for other device families.

Solution

Spectrum flows for Spartan-IIE have not been enabled in ISE.

To enable these flows, open the file "%XILINX%\spartan2e\data\spartan2e.sfs" and uncomment the two Spectrum lines.

The current file text should read as follows:

; $Revision: 1.6 $ $Date: 2001/03/19 22:59:54 $
; Flow Support file for the Spartan-IIE device family


[Flows]
EDIF=edif

Change the text so that it reads:

; Flow Support file for the Spartan-IIE device family
