4.1i Floorplanner - After I floorplan my design, an error occurs: "ERROR:NgdBuild:393 - Could not find INST(S) '<INSTANCE_NAME>"


Keywords: 4.1i, top, level, floorplan, NGDBuild, 393

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After I perform a simple floorplan in the ".ucf" flow and rerun the design flow, the following error is reported during the translate step (NGDBuild):

"ERROR:NgdBuild:393 - Could not find INST(S) '<INSTANCE_NAME> in design 'top'.
INST entry is 'INST "<INST_NAME>" LOC = "<LOCATION>";"


This error occurs because of a problem with the way the Floorplanner writes out certain instance names. If you use the ".mfp" flow, these instance names are correctly written out, and this problem will be avoided.

This issue will be fixed the in the 5.1i software, which is scheduled to be released in September, 2002.
