Spartan-6 GTP Transceiver: Channel Bonding Signals Fail Timing

Description

At higher line rates, the dedicated CHBONDO to CHBONDI paths between the GTP_DUALs have been seen to fail timing.This Answer Record discusses how to work around this issue.

Solution

Because these paths are dedicated in the Spartan-6 architecture, there is no impact to timing from routing and the path has a fixed delay. The CHBONDO to CHBONDI paths have been verified to work correctly at all supported line rates, and the timing failure reported by the tools is incorrect.

To work around the timing error, apply a TIG constraint to the nets connecting these ports. This error will be corrected in the 11.4 release of the tools.Please refer to the Constraints Guide (UG625) for more information on how to apply this constraint.
