XST - When I try to synthesize a design, the following error occurs: "ERROR:Xst:1817 - Invalid target speed '-10'"

Description


When I compile a design to Virtex-4 (previous Virtex-II Pro), after I have changed CONFIG PART in ucf, XST halts with the following error message:



ERROR:Xst:1817 - Invalid target speed '-10'

Solution


This error occurs if the device files are not installed correctly.



To double-check the files, run xinfo and look for "summary= selected: <device_name>".



If the device you are targeting cannot be found, then re-install the ISE CD/DVD with that device selected.
