    I/O Optimizer

    5b700af8-8fda-947a-0100-014d998e30fc

      Hi,

      may someone please explain me where are the different between create FPGA from the Library Manager: FPGA Part Wizard and create FPGA from the FPGA Wizard (call IO Optimizer from Xpedition Designer) in terms of Pin Swap?

      Thanks a lot

          Hello Hung,

           

          With VX.2.2 or later the I/O optimizer tool, there is no difference in terms of pin swapping. See the "Allow swap and unravel between partitions" pin partition property for more details. Signal assignments to pins can be swapped within or between partitions when this property is set to "True".

           

          The advantage of creating a customized FPGA component using the FPGA Wizard from the design entry tool is that you will be able to modify and add pin partitions. By tailoring the pin partitions to reflect the I/O interface of the FPGA project can make the optimization task easier and produce better results. 

           

          Hope this helps!
