Description

General Description: 

The use of non-rectangular area group ranges causes PAR to report the following errors: 

 

"WARNING:Ncd:515 - Could not find ncsite for <CLB_R8C8.*,CLB_R7C9.*:CLB_R8C10.S1>, not setting any extrema."  

 

"FATAL_ERROR:Route:basrtareacst.c:792:1.6.12.3 - Invalid RouteArea Extrema. Process will terminate.

Solution

Currently, Modular Design does not support the use of non-rectangular area group ranges. A non-rectangular area group range is created by specifying multiple area group ranges to a given area group. When Modular Design is used, each module can have only one area group range.
