4.1i XST - "WARNING:HDLParsers:533 - file_name Line #. Default values are ignored in synthesis."

Description

Keywords: XST, synthesis, simulation, default, values, initial, VHDL

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When default/initial values are declared, XST will issue the following warning:

"WARNING:HDLParsers:533 - file_name Line #. Default values are ignored in synthesis."

Solution

Default/initial values are for simulation purposes only. Synthesis cannot insert a value on a port that is meant to be a connection outside of the chip.
