LogiCORE IP DUC/DDC Compiler v3.0 (Rev. 3) - "CRITICAL WARNING: [Netlist 29-98] The DSP48E2 multiplier has increased from 25x18 to 27x18"

Description

In Vivado Design Suite 2013.4, the core may issue a critical warning similar to the following during implementation:

CRITICAL WARNING: [Netlist 29-98] The DSP48E2 multiplier has increased from 25x18 to 27x18, so automatic retargeting when USE_MULT=DYNAMIC is not guaranteed. Please review instance 'U0/i_synth/i_synth/g_ant[2].g_op.f1_op/filt/g_filt[0].fc/mac.mac/fir_select/gen_polyphase_interpolation_symmetry.fir/gen_accum.gen_paths[0].accumulator/gen_structural.gen_virte.gen_dsp48e.gen_dsp48e1_v6.dsp48e1_v6' and make appropriate modifications to ensure pins A[26:25] are sign-extension of A[24] during multiply operation.

Solution

This critical warning can be safely ignored as the circuit will operate as desired. 

This issue is planned to be fixed in 2014.1.
