Primitive: Regional Clock Buffer for I/O and Logic Resources
within a Clock Region
The BUFR is a regional clock buffer in 7 series devices that drives clock signals
to a dedicated clock net within a clock region, independent from the global clock
tree. Each BUFR can drive the regional clock nets in the region in which it is
located. Unlike BUFIO components, BUFR components can drive the I/O logic and logic
resources (CLB, block RAM, etc.) in the existing clock region. They can be driven by
the output from an IBUF, BUFMRCE, MMCM or local interconnect, and are capable of
generating divided clock outputs with respect to the clock input. The divide value
is an integer between one and eight. BUFR components are ideal for
source-synchronous applications requiring clock domain crossing or
serial-to-parallel conversion. There are two BUFR components in a typical clock
region (two regional clock networks). If local clocking is needed in multiple clock
regions, the BUFMRCE can drive multiple BUFR components in adjacent clock regions to
further extend this clocking capability. For more details, refer to BUFMRCE.
||Clock enable port. When asserted low, this port disables the
output clock. When asserted high, the clock is propagated to the output
port (O). This pin cannot be used in "BYPASS" mode. Connect to vcc
when BUFR_DIVIDE is set to "BYPASS" or if not used.
||Counter asynchronous clear for divided clock output. When asserted
high, this port resets the counter used to produce the divided clock
output and the output is asserted low. This pin cannot be used in
"BYPASS" mode. Connect to gnd when BUFR_DIVIDE is set to "BYPASS"
or if not used.
||Clock input port. This port is the clock source port for BUFR.
It can be driven by an IBUF, BUFMRCE, MMCM, or local interconnect.
||Clock output port. This port drives the clock tracks in the
clock region of the BUFR. It connects to FPGA clocked components.
Design Entry Method
||"BYPASS", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8"
||Specifies whether the output clock is a divided version of
the input clock.
||For correct simulation behavior, this attribute must be set
to "7SERIES" when targeting a 7 series device.
