FPGA Configuration - Are XC4000A bit files compatible with XC4000E devices?

Description

Keywords: XC4000A, XC4000E, bitstream, compatible

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Can XC4000A bitstreams be used to configure XC4000E devices?

Solution

Existing XC4000 bitstreams can be used to configure an XC4000E device. XC4000A bitstreams must be regenerated for use with the XC4000E due to improved routing resources, although the devices are pin-for-pin compatible.
