9.2 Schematic Editor - When I use the schematic capture tool, I cannot assign any value other than "0" to the CLKIN_PERIOD attribute for the PLL

Description

When I use the schematic capture tool to add a value to the PLL attribute CLKIN_PERIOD in ECS, I receive the following message: 

 

"'x' is not a legal value for the CLKIN_PERIOD attribute." 

 

The value I specified is not assigned to CLKIN_PERIOD. 


The attribute traits of CLKIN_PERIOD show that both the upper bound and lower bound are "0," and I cannot change these values.

Solution

This issue is Fixed in ISE 10.1. 

 

For ISE 9.2i and earlier, you can work around this problem by specifying the CLKIN_PERIOD attribute in the UCF.  

 

The basic UCF syntax is: 

INST "instance_name" CLKIN_PERIOD=n; 

 

where "n" is a floating-point number representing nanoseconds. 

 

The following statement specifies a 35-nanosecond period of the clock used to drive the CLKIN pin of the PLL: 

INST "top/clk_buf_name" CLKIN_PERIOD=35;
