PlanAhead Design Assistant - Is PlanAhead the sign off tool for Pin Planning?


Is PlanAhead, and its DRCs, the sign off tool for a pin out?

Note: This Answer Record is a part of the Xilinx PlanAhead Solution Center (Xilinx Answer 37100).  The Xilinx PlanAhead Solution Center is available to address all questions related to the PlanAhead tool.  Whether you are starting a new design with the PlanAhead tool or troubleshooting a problem, use the PlanAhead Solution Center to guide you to the right information.


While the PlanAhead tool's DRCs are intended to catch as many issues with a pin out as soon as possible, it is not a sign off tool for Pin Planning. Please ensure that your design runs through Place and Route before committing to a specific pin out.
