General Description:
What does the XPLA Property "TRI-STATE" do?

Solution

XPLA Software supports two properties that will disable the weak
pull-down resistor on unused pins and leave these pins tri-stated. This
is useful when there are unused pins connected to a bus.

For example, the following property disables pull-down on all unused pins
and tri-states them:

xpla property 'tri-state all';


This disables pull-down on u1 at pin 4 and tri-states that pin:

xpla property 'u1:4 tri-state';

NOTE: A pin name must be specified even though the pin is unused.
