Why does this occur?
 

Solution

This is a known issue and has been found to occur in ISE 13.x and 14.x.

The work-arounds are as follows:

  1. Avoid using "-cm speed" in the MAP options.
  2. Use the recommended flow of "-timing" in the MAP properties, this is the default flow for newer architectures and will allow you to use "-cm speed" if required.
  3. For older architectures, using the new XST parser can also avoid this Fatal Error.
    Add "-use_new_parser yes" to the XST command line options.
