7.1i PAR - "ERROR:DesignRules:576 - Netcheck: The signal <x> has a sigpin on the comp <y> that is not in the same route area..."

Description

Keywords: PlanAhead, DRC, fixed, modular

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running PAR in a Module-based Partial Reconfiguration flow, I receive the following error:

"ERROR:DesignRules:576 - Netcheck: The signal <x> has a sigpin on the comp <y> that is not in the same route area as another sigpin of the same signal. This is not permitted for Modules in partial reconfiguration mode unless the signal has the property IS_BUS_MACRO."

Solution

This error occurs when signals attempt to route across a reconfigurable module boundary without going through a bus macro. Please ensure that any signal crossing the reconfigurable module goes through a bus macro.
