Spartan-3 Generation - CCLK differences from Spartan-II/IIE

Description

There is a difference between how the config DOUT is clocked with reference to CCLK between the Spartan-3 Generation and Spartan-II/-IIE.

Solution

The config DOUT is driven off the falling edge of CCLK for all Spartan-3 Generation devices. The Spartan-II/-IIE devices use the rising edge. When migrating a design from Spartan-II/-IIE to any Spartan-3 device, keep this difference in mind.
