MIG 7 Series DDR3 - Multi-controller designs might fail timing in certain configurations

Description

Version Found: v1.5
Version Resolved and Other Known Issues: See (Xilinx Answer 45195).

Virtex-7 FPGA multi-controller designs of 5 controllers or more might fail timing in certain configurations only. 

The following timing failure can be seen:

Slack (setup path): -0.221 ns (requirement - (data path - clock path skew + uncertainty))

Artix-7 FPGA multi-controller designs of three controllers or more might fail timing in certain configurations only. 

The following timing failure can be seen:

Solution

Timing is met for the majority of multi-controller configurations, but there are currently no work-arounds for the above configurations.
