8.1i XST - Spartan-3/E synthesis design reports DCM_ADV instead of DCM


Keywords: HDL, XST Report, Spartan-3, Spartan-3E

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A design for Spartan-3E reports the use of a "DCM_ADV" instead of a DCM in the Device Utilization Summary in the XST Synthesis report file.


This is a known issue with XST Synthesis Report. It should report DCM instead of DCM_ADV when using a Spartan-3/E device.

The map report shows this correctly and this is what should be used for reference.

This issue has been fixed in ISE 8.2i.
