4.1i Virtex-II PAR - The placer fails to align carry chain properly if a macro is a subset of the carry chain.


Keywords: carry, chain, place, unrouted, aligned

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The placer fails to correctly align a carry chain when a subset of the slices in the carry chain belong to a macro.

An example of this would be a carry chain where some of the slices are also assembled into a placer macro in order to properly position some related LUT RAM slices.


This problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i service pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 1.

An alternate work-around is to RLOC the entire carry chain.
