10.1 Floorplan Editor - Why do I get DRC errors: "ERROR:FloorplanEditorC - MGT113AB_TXN<0> : Location constraint incompatible. Please check user IO direction and IOB type?"

Description

When opening a design with LOC'd GT11 Pins, Floorplan Editor gives many bogus DRC errors like: 

 

"ERROR:FloorplanEditorC - MGT113AB_TXN<0> : Location constraint incompatible. Please check user IO direction and IOB type. 

ERROR:FloorplanEditorC - MGT113AB_TXN<0>: The bank number specified does not exist" 

 

Gigabit Serial location does not have any bank number associated with it. Why does it error out?

Solution

This is a known issue in Floorplan Editor. It is fixed in the next generation floorplanning tool.
