5.1i Floorplanner - "Write RPM to NCF" reports "FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities with Designs containing wide functions (FG)"


Keywords: Floorplanner, Write RPM to NCF, fatal, error, GuiUtilities, wide function, FG, placement, invalid placement

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In designs containing wide function components (such as FG6), there may be an invalid placement view in Floorplanner. "Write RPM to NCF" reports the following error:
"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:winnapp.c:583:$Revision - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover....."


To work around this problem, in your top device view, make sure there are no wide function components in which the component BELs extend beyond the valid CLB/SLICE range.

This problem will be fixed in the next major software release (6.1i).
