4.1i MAP - "Warning:MapHelpers:9 - PROHIBIT site "AD24" does not match any site in this package."


Keywords: PROHIBIT, MapHelpers:9, site, pad

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I place a PROHIBIT constraint on a special purpose pin in the UCF file, MAP issues the following warning:

WARNING:MapHelpers:9 - PROHIBIT site "AD24" does not match any site in this package.

This message is misleading because "AD24" is indeed a valid site for this package; however, it is a special purpose pin (M0 in this case), so the site name "AD24" does not exist from the tool's perspective.


The message will be altered in a future release to reflect the fact that this site may exist under a different name if it is a special purpose pin.

It is not necessary to constrain special purpose pin sites.
