Red power LED / Netlist error

We are aware of design errors in CSD 5.1.1 and 5.2

ESP00
If a design is created in CSD 5.1 (or before), recalling a Parameter set via GPI and updated to CSD 5.1.1 or 5.2, all work fine.
But when you upload the design using CSD 5.1.1 or 5.2 an Netlist error will be thrown:

To resolve this issue:

  1. Remove the GPI assignment
  2. Downgrade to CSD 5.1 or below
  3. Power cycle the unit
  4. Upload original design file

ESP FIXED IO - EX-1280C
If a design is created in CSD 5.1 (or before), recalling a Parameter set via GPI and updated to CSD 5.1.1 or 5.2, will generate a red power LED.
After power cycle it will also throw a error notification:

To resolve this:

  1. Scan for devices as soon as the unit has booted
  2. Upload empty design file
  3. Downgrade to CSD 5.1 or below
  4. Power cycle the unit
  5. Upload original design file

For the EX-1280C, instead of step 1-2, one can also restore the design to factory design
