4.1i XC4000 MAP - "ERROR: BLKNM parameter not supported on WAND symbol" (4000 family)

Description

Keywords: MAP, BLKNM, DECODE, WAND

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The following error message is reported:

"ERROR: BLKNM parameter not supported on WAND symbol"

(This error message is misleading, because BLKNM properties actually ARE supported on regular Wired AND functions.)

Solution

The real problem is that BLKNM properties are not valid on WANDs, which have a DECODE parameter attached to the WAND symbol. The DECODE parameter places the WAND components into Wide Edge Decoders during the implementation stage, and it is on these Wide Decoders that BLKNMs are not supported.

Use the LOC attribute if you wish to place the WAND into a wide edge decoder using the DECODE parameter.
