3.1i Virtex-II PAR - FATAL_ERROR:Place:basplmacrobas.c:432: - BAD MACRO ENCOUNTERED


Keywords: Place:basplmacrobas.c:432:, place, placer, par, BAD MACRO, RPM, negative, coordinates

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A case has been seen where the placer fails with the following error:

FATAL_ERROR:Place:basplmacrobas.c:432: - BAD MACRO ENCOUNTERED.
Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and
other online resources at

This problem is caused by the fact that the Virtex-II cannot handle RPM macros with negative
relative coordinates.


This problem will be fixed in the next major release, which is currently scheduled for
July, 2001 (3.1i).

Meanwhile, construct all Virtex-II RPM macros with positive relative coordinates.
