5.1i Floorplanner - Loading an NGD file with RPM Grid constraints causes a fatal error


Keywords: Floorplanner, overlap, Area Group, warning

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I load NGD with RPM Grid constraints, Floorplanner reports the following fatal error:

"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:583:$Revision - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answer Database."


To work around this problem, use FPGA Editor to confirm placement of the logics or remove the RPM Grid constraints when generating the NGD file.

This problem will be fixed in the next major software release.
