11.2 PlanAhead - PlanAhead crashes with a java.lang.NullPointerException error


When I select a placed BSCAN primitive in a PlanAhead project, a PlanAhead Internal Exception occurs. The details of this error indicate that it is a java.lang.NullPointerException.


This is a known issue with having a placed BSCAN component in PlanAhead 11.2.

To work around this issue, unplace the BSCAN without selecting it. This can be accomplished by using the following Tcl command in PlanAhead:

hdi::pconst clearLocs -project <project_name> -floorplan <floorplan_name> -instances <full_hierarchical_instance_name> -keepFixed no

This removes the placement from the primitive and allows you to select it without receiving the error.

This issue is scheduled to be fixed in PlanAhead 11.3.
