14.1 EDK MPMC:ERROR: --family needs option to be specified. Possible values are: spartan3, virtex4, virtex5, virtex6

Description

In the standalone flow, I am using convert_ucf.pl as per the datasheet. (page 96 of mpmc.pdf)

However, I am receiving the error below:

ERROR: --family needs option to be specified. Possible values are: spartan3, virtex4, virtex5, virtex6

The switch "family" is not mentioned in the datasheet.

Solution

This is a known issue.  

Please use the switch -family for the device family that you are using.
