8.2i EDK - "ERROR:Xst:772 - "C:/Xilinx_software/EDK/hw/XilinxProcessorIPLib/pcores/proc_common_v2_00_a/hdl/vhdl/family_support.vhd" line 3252: Attribute is not authorized : 'val'."

Description

When I instantiate a pcore manually and specify the C_FAMILY parameter, the following errors occur: 

 

"ERROR:Xst:772 - "C:/Xilinx_software/EDK/hw/XilinxProcessorIPLib/pcores/proc_common_v2_00_a/hdl/vhdl/family_support.vhd" line 3252: Attribute is not authorized : 'val'. 

ERROR:Xst - Unexpected error found while building hierarchy. 

ERROR:MDT - HDL synthesis failed!"

Solution

To work around this issue, change the value of C_FAMILY from all upper case to all lower case. This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future version of the software.
