4.2i Speedfiles/Timing Analyzer/TRCE - How do I determine the level of multplier stepping used by timing analysis? (CONFIG STEPPING)

Description

General Description:

How do I determine the level of Virtex-II multiplier stepping used by timing analysis (TRCE and Timing Analyzer)?

Solution

Beginning in 4.2i Service Pack 2, the STEPPING level will be included in the TRCE console output:

TRCE Console Output
TRCE Console Output


The STEPPING level can also be viewed in the detailed section of the timing report:

4.2.02i Timing Report
4.2.02i Timing Report


Notice that the STEPPING level in this case is indicated by "MULT_S1", with a corresponding lesser delay parameter for the multiplier.
