Can I move the xTag uplink pins from tile 0 to tile 1?

I am designing a board using the XE216-512-TQ128 and want to use pins X0D40 through X0D43 for my application but I notice on the xCORE-200 explorer board these pins are used for the uplink. Is it possible to move these 4 pins to tile 1 on the device? If so how do I reconfigure the xTAG system to recognise the change?

Thanks

John

Hi. Have not personally tested this but yes, it should be possible.

1) The .XN file used by the toolchain offers the details on which links will be used:

Code: Select all

2) From a quick review of the datasheet:

XL3 appears to be the pair you will want to use. Conjure up a sample project using the default XLINKS -> review the XN file and format -> then manually change it to XL3 and test away.
