causing damage on VCCA_PLL pins of EP3SE50

Hi, 

 

We have a EP3SE50-based design and we have found 3 failing boards out of 25 tested so far, where one of VCCA_PLL pins gets internally shorted after power up. In the design, all VCCA_PLL pins are powered up. What can possibly cause such damage? 

 

We have monitored ramp up of different FPGA voltages and they seem to be fine.  

Any advice?

shorts and opens are said to normally be electrical over stress:
