6.2i BitGen - What happens to the DONE pin when configuring a device using a bitstream generated with -g ActiveReconfig?

Description

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

If a bitstream that was generated using -g ActiveReconfig is used to program a device, what happens to the DONE pin? Does it transition Low and then High, or does it stay High?

Solution

Since using the -g ActiveReconfig flag to generate a bitstream removes the SHUTDOWN and AGHIGH commands from the bitstream, the DONE pin will stay High through the configuration process.
