4.2i NGDBuild, Spartan-IIE - "ERROR:NgdBuild:604 - logical block <> with type "STARTUP_SPARTAN2 is unexpanded...not supported in target 'spartan2e'."

Description

Keywords: startup, startup_spartan2, NGDBuild, unexpanded, translate, 604

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
I am attempting to run my Spartan-IIE design, which contains a Startup_Spartan2 block, through the translate step, the following error is reported:

"ERROR:NgdBuild:604 - logical block '<instance name>' with type 'STARTUP_SPARTAN2' is unexpanded. Symbol 'STARTUP_SPARTAN2' is not supported in target 'spartan2e'."

The documentation states that this start-up block should be used. Why does this error occur?

Solution

This error occurs because of a bug in the software, and the problem is currently under investigation.

To work around this issue, instantiate STARTUP_VIRTEX in your design; this will provide the start-up block functionality.
