MIG 7 Series - Out of Context (OOC) flow fails during synthesis when sys_clk is specified as "No Buffer" in the MIG 7 Series core generation


Version Found: MIG 7 Series v1.9
Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 54025)

When upgrading a MIG 7Series design that has sys_clk set with "No Buffer" and running Out of Context (OOC) flow, synthesis fails with errors similar to the following:

Starting RTL Elaboration : Time (s): cpu = 00:00:10 ; elapsed = 00:00:12 . Memory (MB): peak = 817.828 ; gain = 198.367

To work around this issue, sys_clk needs to be Differential or you have to explicitly specify the sys_clk.
