12.1 PlanAhead - Can I assign I/O to banks without assigning specific pins?

Description

Why does PlanAhead not allow me to assign I/Os to a bank without assigning I/Os to actual pins?

Solution

PlanAhead does not allow assigning I/Os to banks without actually assigning pins to specific I/Os. However, PlanAhead will perform a timing-driven placement to a specific pin when using the Place I/O Ports in I/O Bank assignment mode. Please use this mode for similar functionality.
