FPGA/Design Compiler: Error OPT-101: The target library does not contain inverter.

Description

Keywords: Compiler, opt-101, target, inverter, Synopsys

Urgency: Standard.

General Description:
Running replace_fpga -force gives error:
Error OPT-101: the target library does not contain an inverter.

Solution

This is caused by a missing .db file in the .synopsys_dc.setup file.
In the .synopsys_dc.setup, add xprim_4000-s.db to the target and link libraries
(where "s" is the speed grade).

Example:

link_library = {xprim_4005-5.db xprim_4000-5.db xgen_4000.db \
xio_4000-5.db xfpga_4000-5.db}
target_library = {xprim_4005-5.db xprim_4000-5.db xgen_4000.db \
xio_4000-5.db xfpga_4000-5.db}
