3.1i XST - "WARNING: (FCT__0300). Model 'module_name' has different characteristics in destination library"


Keywords: Verilog, library, primitive, instantiate

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If a user module/component (black box or functional) and a Xilinx primitive have the same name, the XST mapper will rename the user module/component.

"xor4" will be renamed to "xor41."

The warning messages from XST are:

WARNING: (FCT__0300). Model 'xor4' has different characteristics in destination library
WARNING: (FCT__0301). Model name has been changed to 'xor41'

Although Verilog is case-sensitive, this occurs for both VHDL and Verilog Synthesis, regardless of case.


To avoid these warnings, change the name of the user made module/component to something that is a non-primitive name. The list of primitives that XST recognizes can be found in:


NOTE: This issue is fixed in the 4.1i software release.
