Foundation Express 2.0: Module compile inserts STARTUP and clock buffers (BUFG)

Description

Keywords: Foundation, FPGA Express, VHDL, Verilog, Startup, Module

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When compiling a design as a module (by checking the "Do Not Insert I/O" box),
Express will still insert the STARTUP module and BUFG components if it sees
fit to do so. This will become a problem as modules are brought together under
the top level design, as too many resources will be used.

Solution

This issue has been fixed by Synopsys by patch version 2.0.3. This patch can
be downloaded from the Xilinx or Synopsys FTP site (depending on the version
of Express you have). Details are given in (Xilinx Solution 3566).
