MIG 7 Series - Vivado fails in GUI mode when debug signals are enabled


Version Found: MIG 7 Series v1.7.a
Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 45195)

MIG 7 Series fails in Vivado GUI mode when the MIG design signals are enabled.

This is a result of the ChipScope cores being inferred as black boxes, and the following error message can be seen:

ERROR: [Opt 31-30] Blackbox CHIPSCOPE_INST.u_cs1 (vio_ain256_aout64_sout64) is driving pin I2 of primitive cell u_my_mig/u_mig_7series_v1_7_rld_memc_ui_top_std_i_2. This blackbox cannot be found in the existing library.

This includes MIG example designs created by using the "Open IP Example Design" option in the Vivado GUI.


To work around this issue, use the vivado.tcl script generated by MIG and located in the /example_design/par/ and /user_design/par/ directories.

Example command: 

vivado -source vivado.tcl -mode batch
