13.2 Partial Reconfiguration MAP - "ERROR:PhysDesignRules - Component: ABC is placed incorrectly at site IOB_XXYY..."


The following error occurs if I run my Partial Reconfiguration design through MAP:

"ERROR:PhysDesignRules - Component: test_count is placed incorrectly at site IOB_X0Y385.
This site is part of the private area group owned by Partition: pblock_U2_RP_Count.
This component belongs to Partition: Static."


This is a known issue that only affects devices that use the Stacked Silicon Interconnect (e.g., Virtex-7 xc7v1500t and xc7v2000t devices). This error only occurs in Partial Reconfiguration designs which do not have all the top level I/Os locked to IOBs with LOC constraints.

To work around this issue, use LOC constraints for all the I/Os in your design.

This issue is scheduled to be fixed in the ISE 13.3 software release.
