LogiCORE Reed Solomon Encoder v8.0 - Why do I get an Application Error when trying to synthesize using 2012.2 Vivado Synthesis?

Description

Why do I receive an Application Error when trying to synthesize using 2012.2 Vivado Synthesis?

A number of tests are failing in Vivado Synthesis, and synthesis is crashing without any error.

When implIP.pl is run the following message is seen in pa_implIP.log

********************************************************************************************

THIS XILINX APPLICATION HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM WHILE ISSUING MESSAGES.

NO FURTHER MESSAGES WILL BE ISSUED.

********************************************************************************************

The application is exiting with a non zero exit code:
 
Exit Code: 255

Solution

This issue has been resolved in Vivado Synthesis 2012.3.

This does not happen with all configurations of the Reed Solomon Encoder.

To work around this issue, XST can be used.

Please See (Xilinx Answer 30177) for a detailed list of LogiCORE Reed Solomon Encoder Release Notes and Known Issues.
