Primitive: Bi-Directional Single-ended Buffer with DCI and Input Disable
This design element is a bidirectional single ended I/O buffer used to connect internal logic to an external bidirectional pin. This element includes Digitally Controlled Impedance (DCI) termination enable/disable as well as input path disable as additional power saving features when the I/O is either in an unused state or being used as an output for a sustained amount of time. This element may only be placed in High Performance (HP) banks in the 7 series devices.
|IO||In/out||1||Bi-directional port connection. Connect directly to top-level port in the design.|
|I||Input||1||Buffer input representing the output path to the device.|
|IBUFDISABLE||Input||1||Disables input path. When this signal is asserted HIGH and the attribute USE_IBUFDISABLE is set to "TRUE", the input path through the input buffer is disabled and forced to a logic HIGH. If USE_IBUFDISABLE is set to "FALSE" this input is ignored and should be tied to ground. This feature is generally used to reduce power at times when the I/O is either idle or during sustained write (output) conditions.|
|DCITERMDISABLE||Input||1||Disables DCI termination. When this signal is asserted HIGH, DCI termination is disabled. This feature is generally used to reduce power at times when the I/O is either idle or during sustained write (output) conditions.|
|T||Input||1||Sets the I/O in a high impedance 3-state mode when the I/O is being used for a read (input) operation. The T pin also affects the IBUFDISABLE function when USE_IBUFDISABLE = "TRUE".|
|O||Output||1||Buffer output representing the input path to the device.|
Design Entry Method
|DRIVE||INTEGER||2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24||12||Selects output drive strength (mA) for the SelectIO™ buffers.|
|IBUF_LOW_PWR||STRING||"TRUE", "FALSE"||"TRUE"||Allows a trade off of lower power consumption vs. highest performance.|
|IOSTANDARD||STRING||See Data Sheet||"DEFAULT"||Assigns an I/O standard to the element.|
|SLEW||STRING||"SLOW", "FAST",||"SLOW"||Sets the output rise and fall time. See the Data Sheet for recommendations of the best setting for this attribute.|
|USE_IBUFDISABLE||STRING||"TRUE", "FALSE"||"TRUE"||Enables or disables the feature of IBUFDISABLE. Set to FALSE when it is not desirable to have the T pin disable input path to allow a read during write operation. When set to TRUE deasserting T (IO used as output) or asserting IBUFDISABLE will disable the input path through the buffer and forces to a logic high.|
