10.1 NGDBuild - "ERROR:NgdBuild:955 - Partition '/ff_top/se_unit_inst' was defined..."


I receive the following error on my partitioned design:

"ERROR:NgdBuild:955 - Partition '/ff_top/se_unit_inst' was defined, but there is no instance by that name in the user hierarchy. Please remove this Partition to resolve the error."

How can I resolve this issue?


This has been fixed in the 11.1 software release.

As a work-around in an HDL flow, make sure the "-case" switch is set to "lower" and not "upper" in the XST Synthesis Option dialog. The "-case upper" is not allowed in the HDL flow with partitions.
