M1.5 Floorplanner - RPMs are incorrectly displayed in the Floorplanner


Keywords: DRC, Misaligned, RPM, Floorplanner

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Relationally Placed Macros (RPMs) contain specific placement information. Floorplanner improperly translates this information for specific designs, which results in a Floorplan DRC ERROR.


Follow these steps to resolve this error:

1. Run the design through PAR or Place and Route.
2. Load the Placed and Routed NCD file with the NGD file into Floorplanner.
3. Run "Check Floorplan" to find the RPM that is improperly translated.
4. Select the RPM in the Floorplan Window.
5. Press the "Delete" key.
6. Select "Constrain from Placement" from the Floorplan menu.

This will properly build the RPM and place it in the Floorplan window. You can now Floorplan the RPM.
