ISE 10.1 SP3 Spartan IIE MAP - "ERROR:Pack:1107" on GCLK IOBs

Description


When I add a PULLDOWN constraint to the GCLK clock pin in the UCF in a design targeting a Spartan IIE device, the following error is received during MAP.
 

ERROR:Pack:1107 - Unable to combine the following symbols into a single GCLKIOB  component:
    PAD symbol "local_32m" (Pad Signal = local_32m)
    PULL symbol "local_32m_PULLDOWN" (Output Signal = local_32m)
    GCLKIBUF symbol "local_32m_u" (Output Signal = local_32m_t)
   Symbol local_32m_PULLDOWN is not a kind of symbol that can join a clock I/O  component.


 How can I solve this issue?

Solution


The GCLK is an input only pin in Spartan IIE devices and does not have optimal pull-up/pull-down resistors.

To resolve this problem, remove the PULLDOWN constraint.
 
For more information, please refer to the Spartan IIE Date sheet.
