5.1i Constraints Editor - Constraints Editor does not properly initialize RAMs


General Description:

When I use a dual-port RAM or multi-bit ROM in my design, it appears as multiple instances in Constraints Editor. I assign INIT values to these instances, but they are ignored by the tools.


Do not use Constraints Editor to initialize values for these RAM/ROMs.

To work around, this situation, specify the INITs by hand in the UCF, NCF, or source file on the top-level instance.
