4.2i XABEL, Foundation - The following message appears during synthesis: "ref_2_inst: dangling port"


Keywords: XABEL, macro, PCM, Project Manager

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I synthesize an ABEL module in Foundation, a series of the following warnings appears in the Project Manager message log window during synthesis:

"ref_2_inst: dangling port"


These messages may be safely ignored.

Generally, one of these messages will be reported for each port in the ABEL module. As the ABEL file was compiled as a macro and not as a chip, these ports are reported as dangling, which results in the warnings.
