FPGA Express 1.2, 2.0: XC4000 Global Buffer constraints: ERROR:baste:263

説明

Keywords: Map, BUFGP, BUFGS, XL, EX, FPGA EXPRESS, 1.2, 2.0, LOC, pin
constraints, clock

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

In MAP the following error is reported:

ERROR:baste:263 - The LOC constraint "BUFG_WNW, BUFGE_WNW, BUFGLS_WNW"
(a BUFG location) is not valid for BUFGS symbol "<symbol name>"
(output signal=<signal name>), which is being mapped to the following site
types: BUFGLS

Cause:
FPGA Express puts location constraints onto the global buffer instead of on
the pad (EXT record). If you attempt to place a standard "Pxx" pin location
constraint on a clock within Express, this error will occur.


This problem has been resolved with Express patch version 2.0.3. Please see
(Xilinx Solution 3566) to download this patch.

ソリューション

Instead of using the pin number to constrain the clock, use the clock buffer
name and location. Each XC4000EX/XL clock buffer is designated by a position
name.

GCK1 = BUFGLS_WNW
GCK2 = BUFGLS_WSW
GCK3 = BUFGLS_SSW
GCK4 = BUFGLS_SSE
GCK5 = BUFGLS_ESE
GCK6 = BUFGLS_ENE
GCK7 = BUFGLS_NNE
GCK8 = BUFGLS_NNW

Each GCKs corresponding pin number can be found in the pinout table for the
particular package used.

For XC4000E, the syntax is slightly different:

BUFGP_TL, BUFGP_TR, BUFGP_BL, BUFGP_BR,
BUFGS_TL, BUFGS_TR, BUFGS_BL, BUFGS_BR,

In FPGA Express:
1. Create an implementation.
2. Double click on the current Implemenation and select the Ports tab.
3. Under Pad Loc, replace the pin number with the GCK location name.

Another option is to place the pin location constraint in the UCF file using
the following syntax:

NET <clock_port_name> LOC = P<pin_number>;
