2014.2 Vivado Synthesis - DONT_TOUCH attribute is being ignored due to gated clock conversion


This issue occurs in cases where a DONT_TOUCH attribute is applied to a lower level module which contains clock gating logic.

When the gated clock conversion is turned on, Vivado Synthesis ignores the DONT_TOUCH attribute and converts the gated clock regardless.


This is a known issue in Vivado Design Suite 2014.2 and older versions and is fixed in the 2014.3 release.
