IBM FPGACore - MAP fails with the message: "FATAL_ERROR:Map:Portability/export/Port_Main..."


Keywords: CORE, PACE, crash, FATAL, ERROR, Portability

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
MAP fails with the following message:

"FATAL_ERROR:Map:Portability/export/Port_Main.h:127:1.22 - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. Process will terminate."


In some cases, the PACE utility might allow an IO bank constraint to be placed on an output that does not have a specific, named location. These IO bank constraints are not necessary because the FPGACore device does not have banks.

To work around this issue, open the ".UCF" file and manually replace any and all IO bank constraints with a specific pin constraint. The next major release will ignore these bank constraints.
