3.1i NGDBuild, SYNPLIFY 6.1 - "ERROR:NgdBuild:432 - logical block '<instance>' with type 'DFFRS(or LDCP_1)' is unexpanded."

Description

Keywords: Spartan, Spartan-XL, 4000, translate, NGDBuild

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run NGDBuild on an EDIF netlist produced from Synplify, the following error appears:

"ERROR:NgdBuild:432 - logical block '<instance>' with type 'DFFRS' is unexpanded."

or

"ERROR:NgdBuild:432 - logical block '<instance>' with type 'LDCP_1' is unexpanded."

This occurs on XC4000/X/XL/XLA and Spartan/XL devices.

This problem is fixed in Synplify version 7.0.

Solution

The DFFRS and LDCP_1 primitives are not supported in XC4000/X/XL/XLA or Spartan/XL devices. However, Synplify incorrectly instantiates these primitives when it recognizes the construct in the HDL code.

To work around this, copy "dffrs.xnf" and "ldcp_1.xnf" from the following directory:

$SYNPLICITY/lib/xilinx/

to the directory where the top-level EDIF project file resides.

(NOTE: $SYNPLICITY is the directory of Synplify software install.)

Please see (Xilinx Answer 3486) for more information.
