Version Found: MIG 7 Series v2.3 Rev2
Version Resolved: See (Xilinx Answer 54025)
When reviewing the Check Timing Summary for the 7 Series DDR3 MIG core, I see the following Critical Warning.
Why does this occur?
Can it be safely ignored?
This occurs because the CLKOUT4 output from the PLLE2 instantiated in the MIG RTL is connected to a BUFH, but the BUFH output is not connected to anything within the MIG and is not available at the MIG top level either.
This is not required for a MIG core and it can be safely ignored.
The Vivado software tools should optimize this connection away in the implemented design.
If that does not occur, it is safe to manually modify the MIG code to remove this BUFH.
However, if the MIG core is regenerated it will overwrite any modification made unless the MIG has the "IS_MANAGED" property disabled.
See (Xilinx Answer 57546) for information on modifying the RTL.
