2013.1 Vivado - Drag and drop placement of SERDES or DDR Cells to BELs in Device Editor does not work

Description

If I attempt to drag and drop a SERDES or DDR cell to BELs in Device Editor, the operation fails.

This worked as expected in Vivado Design Suite 2012.4.

Was this an intentional change? If not, is there a way to fix this issue?

Solution

The change was unintentional and is fixed in Vivado Design Suite 2013.2.

To work around the problem, the SERDES or DDR can be placed using a Tcl command in the Tcl console.

Example:

   place_cell {serdesGen[0].serdes/ISERDES_NODELAY_inst} {ILOGIC_X0Y186}
