FPGA Express - DPM: "Error: tried to use synchronized value in routine"


Keywords: synchronized, DPM, routine, FPGA Express

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When synthesizing in FPGA Express, I receive the following error when I try to perform a function such as SYN_INTEGER_TO_SIGNED on a FOR loop counter variable:

DPM: error: tried to use synchronized value in routine.


To work around this error, assign the counting variable to an intermediate signal, then perform the function on the intermediate signal.
