4.1i XST - "ERROR:Xst:765 - file_name.vhd (Line xx). Component 'comp_name' has same name as enclosing entity."

Description

Keywords: VHDL, entity, instance, instantiation, component

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I instantiate a component into an entity of the same name, XST issues the following error message:

"ERROR:Xst:765 - file_name.vhd (Line xx). Component 'comp_name' has same name as enclosing entity."

Solution

The entity and the instantiated component must each have unique names. To avoid this error, change either the name of the entity or the name of the component.
