NGDBuild - "ERROR:based:58 - On or above line 890 in file "repic.edf" occurs when I use a Synplify netlist

Description

Keywords: Synplicity, Synplify, 5200, NGDBuild, EDIF, XNF

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I target an XC5200 family using Synplicity 5.0.8 or earlier, the following error occurs in NGDBuild:

"ERROR:based:58 - On or above line 890 in file "repic.edf": Bad portRef "I5" in net "U2_inst_repic_code_slow_flashZ0". This likely means that the EDIF netlist was improperly written. Please contact the vendor of the program that produced this EDIF file."

Solution

This happens if Synplify generates an EDIF as a netlist.

To avoid this problem, use XNF instead of EDIF for an XC5000 flow.
