1.9.3. Validating Periphery (I/O) after the Plan Stage

The Compiler begins periphery placement during the Plan stage, and reports data about periphery elements, such as I/O pins and PLLs. After the Plan stage, view the Compilation Report to evaluate the placement of periphery elements before proceeding to the next compilation stage.

  1. In the Compilation Dashboard, click the Plan stage.
  2. In the Compilation Report, under the Plan Stage folder, click the Input Pins, Output Pins, I/O Bank Usage, PLL Usage Summary, or other reports. Verify attributes of the I/O pins, such as the physical pin location, I/O standards, and PLL placement.
