Description

Keywords: MapHelpers, mhcconstimp.c, 162, area, group, resolveSiteType, LOC

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A design that mapped correctly in 3.1i SP2 fails in 3.1i SP3 with the error:

FATAL_ERROR: MapHelpers: mhcconstimp.c:162:1.7.20.1 - resolveSiteType()
has not been called on this LOC. Process will terminate. To resolve this error,
please consult the Answers Database and other online resources at
http://support.xilinx.com

Solution

This problem is due to an interaction between Area Group constraints
on comps that are being packed into IOBs and the LOC attributes that
are on other IOB comps.

This problem is fixed in the latest 3.1i Service Pack available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates. The first
service pack containing the fix is 3.1i Service Pack 5.
