6.3i CPLDFit CoolRunner-II - Output permanently set to 'Z' (high impedance, 3-state) fails to function in device

Description

General Description:

When a user specifies in his design that a permanently 3-stated output is desired, the software implements this using an Open Drain configuration. This is incorrect, as the output should always be 3-stated, and not be dependant on an input.

This bug is present only when targeting a CoolRunner-II CPLD.

Solution

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.3i Service Pack available at:

http://support.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 6.3i Service Pack 2.
