3.1i Virtex-II PAR - FATAL_ERROR:Place:basplmacrobas.c:432:1.8.22.1 - BAD MACRO ENCOUNTERED

Description

Keywords: Place:basplmacrobas.c:432:1.8.22.1, place, placer, par, BAD MACRO, RPM, negative, coordinates

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A case has been seen where the placer fails with the following error:

FATAL_ERROR:Place:basplmacrobas.c:432:1.8.22.1 - BAD MACRO ENCOUNTERED.
Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and
other online resources at http://support.xilinx.com

This problem is caused by the fact that the Virtex-II cannot handle RPM macros with negative
relative coordinates.

Solution

This problem will be fixed in the next major release, which is currently scheduled for
July, 2001 (3.1i).

Meanwhile, construct all Virtex-II RPM macros with positive relative coordinates.
