12.1 - Xpower Analyzer - CPLD based designs do not load SAIF stimulus file


When I try to load an SAIF as my stimulus file for XPower Analyzerwhen using a CPLD device, I see the following error:

ERROR:Power:1907 - VCD Parsing Error parse error on line 2.


This is a known issue. SAIF is not currently supported for CPLD-based designs. In ISE 12.3 and later, the message has been changed to:

ERROR:Power:1961 - SAIF simulation files are not supported for CPLD designs.

As a workaround use a VCD stimulus file instead.
