2014.4 Vivado - Vivado IDE Error "Abnormal program termination (11)" when displaying elaborated design


When I open an elaborated design, Vivado Design Suite terminates with the following message:

Abnormal program termination (11)
Please check '<vivado_launch_directory>/hs_err_pid22234.log' for details

The hs_err_pid#####.log file contains the following stack:

<Install_dir>/Vivado/2014.4/tps/lnx64/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so [0x2b4f2419a6d9]
<Install_dir>/Vivado/2014.4/tps/lnx64/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so(JVM_handle_linux_signal+0xad) [0x2b4f241a04cd]
<Install_dir>/Vivado/2014.4/tps/lnx64/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so [0x2b4f241974f3]
/lib64/libc.so.6 [0x3309c302d0]


The crash is related to an OBUFDS that has a LOC constraint set but no IOSTANDARD constraint (for example if the IOSTANDARD constraint was to be applied later in the flow).
To work around this Abnormal Program Termination, avoid loading the elaborated design in this condition by doing either of the following:
  • Apply the IOSTANDARD constraint earlier in the flow (Before opening the elaborated design).
  • Examine the design later in the flow (for example by viewing the Synthesized design).
This issue will be fixed in the 2015.1 release of Vivado.
