4.1i Virtex-II MAP - A crash occurs when I use the "-timing" option


Keywords: -timing, timing, driven, RPM, Block, BLKRAM

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
MAP crashes immediately after the message, "Performing timing-driven analysis...".

(In one case, the problem was found to be caused by a problem in handling an area-constrained RPM with a BLKRAM as a reference component while in timing-driven mapping mode. All three of these factors contributed to the error.)


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 3.
