12.1 NGDBuild/Constraint - "ERROR:NGD:635 - Specification "OFFSET=IN


The following NGDBuild error occurs:

"ERROR:NGD:635 - Specification "OFFSET=IN <time>ps before <signal_name>" on signal "<problem_signal> (for_INT)" is not valid, because this signal is not connected directly to a pad."


The error above is associated with the following constraint:

NET "<problem_signal>*" OFFSET= IN <time>ns before <signal_name>;

NOTE: The "*" indicates that you want to include each bit in the bus on this constraint.

To avoid this error, place parentheses around the "*", as in the following example:

NET "<problem_signal>(*)" OFFSET= IN <time>ns before <signal_name>;

Both of these signal names must be associated with pads.
