4.1i Modular Design - PAR: "ERROR:Place:1951 - Component...is marked as being of type UNDEFINED"

Description

Keywords: placer, incremental, design, implementation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
During incremental assembly (module as context) implementation in Modular Design, PAR reports the following error:

"ERROR:Place:1951 - Component <component_name> is marked as being of type
MODULE_CELLTYPE::UNDEFINED."

Solution

This error has been fixed in the 4.2i software release, so you can safely ignore it.

The NCD file produced by PAR is a valid NCD file. You can continue to use this file through the completion of your design. This error is caused by an incorrect property that is attached to the Physically Implemented Module (PIM). PAR checks for this property to determine the logic type. In the new "modules as context" flow, this is a legal value.
