11.4 Spartan-6 Place - LX25 device has BUFIO2 pin compatibility issue with other devices

Description

It has been discovered that the Spartan-6 LX25 device has an issue that affects pin compatibility with other devices in the family. The issue affects left and right side BUFIO2s. There are 6 IOBs on each side that have a difference in which BUFIOs can be used to source the clock.


Solution

There are 12 pins affected by this issue: H3, H4, K5, K6, L5, L7, J13, K14, L12, L13, K15, and K16. If these pins are driven by a BUFIO2, then the LX25 is not pin compatible with the LX16 or LX45.
