How can I find out the column and bank location of an I/O pin? How can I find out the adjacent bank number?
The location of I/Os on the die can be viewed in PACE, Floorplanner, and FPGA Editor. For a text file version with banking locations, PARTGen can be run to generate a ".pkg" file. The command line for PARTGen is:
partgen -v <device>
an example of a device name is: xc4vlx60
PARTGen lists IOB coordinates for each I/O in the form of IOBxxyy,
x0 is the is the left column of I/O.
x1 is the center column of I/O.
x2 is the right column of I/0.
y0 is the bottom of the die.
ymax is the top of the die.
