Spartan-6, ISE 12.2, DCM_CLKGEN - PROGDONE might not assert after changing the M and D values


When using the Dynamic Reconfiguration of the M and D values of the DCM_CLKGEN, PROGDONE might not assert, or the M and D values might not be correctly reprogrammed.


This is a known issue with ISE 12.2 tools only and is scheduled to be fixed in ISE Design Suite 12.3.This worked properly prior to 12.2 as well.The issue is caused by the software tools incorrectly configurating the DCM while in DCLK_CLKGEN mode.
There is a work-around if this functionality is required in ISE Design Suite 12.2.For assistance with this work-around, contact Xilinx Technical Support by opening a WebCase and referencing this Answer Record:
This issue is fully resolved in ISE Design Suite 12.3.
