Spartan-3/-3E/-3A/-6 BUFGMUX - What is the setup time for the select or enable signal of BUFGMUX?


What is the setup time for the select pin (S) of the BUFGMUX?


The Spartan-3 FPGA Generation User Guide and the Spartan-6 FPGA Clocking User Guide both state the following (or something similar) in the BUFGMUX section:
"The select line can change at almost any time, independent of the clock states or transitions. The only exception is a short setup time prior to a Low-to-High transition on the selected clock input, which can result in an undefined runt pulse output."
The setup time of the select pin (S)is reported in each device's respective datasheet and by the Timing Analyzer or TRCE as Tgsi0 and Tgsi1. This value is reported as part of the data vs. clock path analysis (e.g., when an "OFFSET IN" constraint is applied).

Clock Path Delay: -1.035ns (Levels of Logic = 2)

Clock Uncertainty: 0.000ns

Data Path: Select_line to BUFGMUX_1
