7.1 Incremental Design/MAP - "ERROR:MapHelpers:189 - AREA_GROUP 'AG_x' does not have a RANGE set in either the current or the guide design" when using AutoFloorplanner

Description


When using the AutoFloorplanner with blocks that do not contain slice-logic, the following error occurs:



"ERROR:MapHelpers:189 - AREA_GROUP 'AG_x' does not have a RANGE set in either the current or the guide design"

Solution


Since the AutoFloorplanner generates only slice-ranges, the error is implying that a valid range constraint is not present.



To work around this issue, remove any Area Group instances on blocks that do not contain slice logic and LOC this logic to a site.
