14.2 Kintex-7 Pack - MAP fails with incorrect error messages regarding over-utilized high range I/O banks
Cases have been seen where designs with high utilization of high range I/Os fail with incorrect messages about the high range I/O banks being over-utilized.
ERROR:Pack:2943 - This device does not have enough High Range I/O Banks to support the number of I/Os that have I/O standards above 1.8V that require placement into High Range I/O banks. Please evaluate the number of High Range I/O banks your design requires and compare that to the number of High Range banks supported in this device/package.
ERROR:Map:237 - The design is too large to fit the device. Please check the Design Summary section to see which resource requirement for your design exceeds the resources available in the device. Note that the number of slices reported may not be reflected accurately as their packing might not have been completed.
This problem will be fixed in ISE Design Suite 14.4.
