LogiCORE Endpoint Block Plus for PCI Express v1.6.1 - Hold violations are reported for x4 and x1 designs using 10.1


When implementing x4 and x1 Block Plus Core designs in 10.1, the Timing Analyzer reports the following failure:

"Hold Violations: PERIOD analysis for net "ep/BU2/U0/pcie_ep0/pcie_blk/clocking_i/clkout0" derived from NET "sys_clk_c" PERIOD = 10 ns HIGH 50%; divided by 2.50 to 4 nS


Hold Violation: -0.316ns (requirement - (clock path skew + uncertainty - data path))

Source: ep/BU2/U0/pcie_ep0/pcie_blk/pcie_ep (CPU)

Destination: ep/BU2/U0/pcie_ep0/pcie_blk/prod_mim_fixes_I/sync_fifo_mim_I/full (FF)

Requirement: 0.000ns

Data Path Delay: 0.131ns (Levels of Logic = 1)

Positive Clock Path Skew: 0.234ns
