BitGen Spartan-3 - DRC error occurs when RSDS_25 and LVCMOS25 are placed in the same bank

Description

Why does the following DRC error occur in BitGen when RSDS_25 and LVCMOS25 outputs are placed in the same bank:

"ERROR:PhysDesignRules:759 - IOB comp <xx> at location <yy> is incompatible for bank <#>. The incompatible code is <1>."

Solution

Putting an LVCMOS25 output in the same bank as an RSDS_25 output is a valid placement.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 8.1i Service Pack available at:
