ISE 13.1 ERROR:Pack:2310 - Too many comps of type "STARTUP" found to fit this device.

Description

I am using partition flow in my design and receive the following error messages even though there is only one START_UP primitive instantiated inside my design:

 

ERROR:Pack:2310 - Too many comps of type "STARTUP" found to fit this device.

 ERROR:Map:237 - The design is too large to fit the device.  Please check the Design Summary section to see which resource requirement for your design exceeds the resources available.

Solution

This issue occurs when a START_UP primitive is instantiated in a lower level partition which is then imported into a design.  

Map is unable to see this primitive and inserts a START_UP primitive itself before the lower level partition is imported.  

This results in there being two START_UP primitives in the design and the resulting errors.

 

The solution is to not have a START_UP primitive instantiated in a lower level partition and keep it in the top level partition.

Below is the detail from UG748:

The only required element to keep in the Top partition is STARTUP.
If the design contains a STARTUP block, this block should either be instantiated in Top, or allowed to be inferred in Top.

 
If STARTUP is instantiated inside a child partition, a STARTUP is also inferred in Top. This results in Map errors.

ERROR:Pack:2310 - Too many comps of type "STARTUP" found to fit this device.

 

ERROR:Map:237 - The design is too large to fit the device. Please check the Design Summary section to see which resource requirement for your design exceeds the resources available
