12.1 PlanAhead - Errors reported when placing pin(s) connected to OSERDES2 on GCLK sites in Spartan-6

Description

When I attempt to place an output connected to an OSERDES2 on a GCLK pinin a Spartan-6 FPGA PlanAheadproject,the following error occurs:

"Illegal to place instance xyz on site BUFIO2FB_XxYy"

However, if I put that constraint in my UCF and run the design through implementation, it passes without errors.

Solution

This has been fixed for the 12.3 PlanAhead software release. Please upgrade to the latest version of the softwareto avoid this error.
