(LVDS_25, LVDSEXT_25, LVDS_25_DCI, LVDSEXT_25_DCI, ULVDS_25, and LDT_25)  

 

This breaks the rules for Differential Termination in the Virtex-4 User Guide. Which one is correct?

Solution

There should be DRC errors in Floorplan Editor/PACE. This problem has been fixed in PlanAhead. Please use PlanAhead to have a correct DRC.
