11.1 EDK - "WARNING:Data2MEM:53 File 'system.bmm' was empty or had no content."

Description

Since my design does not include any block RAMs, I have specified in the software applications to not initialize block RAM. However, the implementation generates errors during NGDBuild and the following message occurs:

"WARNING:Data2MEM:53 - File 'proc.bmm' was empty or had no content."

An error message similar to the following might also occur:

"cp: cannot stat `implementation/system_bd.bmm': No such file or directory"

Solution

In the fast_runtime.opt file in the "etc" folder of your project directory, comment out the following lines under "Program NGDBuild":

#-bm <design>.bmm # Block RAM memory map file
