13.4 Spartan-6 -1L - Why are there config rate options in BitGen that are inconsistent with the data sheet?


BitGen allows you to select config rates of up to 26 MHz in the selection GUI which is not consistent with the 10-30 MHz specification listed in the data sheet shown for Spartan-6 -1L devices.


It is advised to select a config rate in BitGen of up to 16 MHz when using an -1L Spartan-6 device such that the range of 8 MHz to 24 MHz is still consistent with the device data sheet. A warning is issued if the config rate option for a Spartan-6 -1L device is selected to be higher than 16 MHz.
