12.1 PlanAhead - When changing I/O attributes on a differential pair, changes are only reflected on the master


When I change the attributes for the differential I/O (e.g., slew rate, IOStandard, etc.) in the PlanAhead software, the ".ucf" file that is written out only writes out the attributes for the P side.

Why is the N side of the differential pair being ignored?


This is a known issue in the PlanAhead software.When you make changes to the attributes for a differential I/O, the changes are only reflected for the P side of the differential pair (rather than the N side).

You can work around the issue by manually writing out the attributes for the N side in the ".ucf" file.

You can also leave it as it is and the implementation tools will take care of assigning location and attributes of the N side of the pair depending on the location and attributes of the P-side.

A CR is under investigation to fix the issue for a future release of thePlanAhead software.
