XC3000/XC4000/XC5200: How to select cmos input thresholds for FPGAs

Description

Keywords: THRESHOLD, TTL, CMOS, INPUTS, FPGAs

The input thresholds for FPGAs can be set to either CMOS
or TTL (TTL is the default)

The setting is a globally selectable input threshold
(all CMOS or all TTL), selectable when you run makebits.
If you type "makebits -h", you will see two ways of doing this :

-c

or

-f Input: CMOS

Solution

FROM DOS:

For 2000 and 3000 use:
makebits -c

For 4000 and 5200 use:
makebits -f inputs:cmos
