14.7 Spartan-6 Timing Analysis - Speed files - Hold violations in silcon for ICAP

Description

When running my Spartan-6 design with an ICAP, I receive hold violations on the pins of the ICAP.  

How can I work around this?

Solution

For some recent characterization results, the input pins of the ICAP have an incorrect hold time requirement in the speed file for Spartan-6.   

The hold time needs to change from 0ps to ~1200ps for LX9, LX16, LX25, LX45T, LX75T, LX100T, and LX150T devices. 

The workaround is to add a LUT in the data paths that drive the ICAP.
