General Description: How long can net names and pin names be?

Solution

Net names can be up to 22 characters long, and pin names can
be up to 14 characters long. For buses, this includes the
brackets and indices (so BUS[8:0] would be an 8-character
name).

Legal Xilinx net/pin name characters are: A-Z, a-z, 0-9, '_',
and '-'. Xilinx software is not case-sensitive, so 'Net1'
and 'net1' are interpreted as the same net.
