Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I would like to use the TDO pin of my device as a regular I/O. How do I do this?

Solution

1

A TDO symbol does not currently exist in ECS. Therefore, you must create a symbol by instantiating the TDO in HDL and generating a symbol for it under "Design Entry Utilities". (Instantiations can be found in Resolutions 2 and 3.)

This issue is fixed in the latest 4.2i service pack, available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.2i Service Pack 2.

VHDL Instantiation of TDO:

component TDO
port(
O : in STD_ULOGIC);
end component;

3

Verilog Instantiation of TDO:

module TDO(O);
input O;
endmodule
