FPGA Express - "Error: Can't find type information (.typ file) for filename (HDL-353)"

Description

Keywords: .typ, type, HDL-353, subtype, FPGA Express, Foundation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use a specific sub-type such as:

subtype uword8 is unsigned(7 downto 0))

or when I declare my own type and try to pass the user-made type into a generic, the following error occurs during synthesis:

"Error: Can't find type information (.typ file) for filename RTLOGIC.RTLOGIC.UWORD8 (sub-type name)."

Solution

Use of sub-types is not supported at this time. Furthermore, only integer types are supported in generics.
