13.1 PrimeTime/Timing Analysis - What Xilinx product families/devices are supported?

Description

What Xilinx product families are supported in PrimeTime?

Solution

  • Xilinx supports PrimeTime for Post PAR Static Timing Analysis (STA) when targeting Virtex-E, Virtex-II, Virtex- II Pro, and Spartan-3 devices.
  • PrimeTime is NOT golden STA for Xilinx. PrimeTime results must be checked against TRACE.
    • There are no plans to further enhance the flow and support additional devices (e.g., Virtex-4 and beyond).
  • Xilinx continues to enhance its golden STA tool (TRACE) to analyze designs thoroughly and improve result reporting as complexity increases.
