wpwrakit's quiz time - you have 10 seconds to answer ! ;-)16:53
lekernel"ERROR:PhysDesignRules:797 - Illegal placement. Component dummy must be placed in a bonded site." grmbl. obviously, if I figured out the undocumented UCF constraint to use unbonded I/O sites, I do want to use an unbonded I/O site ...16:56
lekernelthe whole P&R runs correctly on those sites, except it won't let me generate a programming file16:58
lekernelI wonder if there is a hidden "skip DRC" option in bitgen. it would be convenient, for that and for reverse engineering purposes ...16:59
lekernelflickernoise 2.0 patch editor should be like that :-)17:59
mwallelekernel: what can you do with unbonded io sites?18:07
lekerneluse the I/O delay elements internally18:09
lekernelwithout wasting package pins18:09
lekernelalso, the Spartan-6 soft DDR PHY uses a dummy I/O site to help calibrate against PVT drift18:10
lekernelI'm sure I saw unbonded I/O sites used in some designs... but maybe not in S618:11
lekernelthere could be a good reason for that, e.g. if they no longer test unbonded I/Os18:11
qi-botThe Firmware build was successfull, see images here: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/build-milkymist/milkymist-firmware-11062011-2242/23:33
