Floorplanning Failure: Consecutively Available Sites

Jump to solution

Currently trying to implement 16 512-tap long FIR filters on a ZU9EG device. Each device uses 128 DSP slices (decimate by 4).

The ZU9EG has 2520 DSP slices available and I should be utilizing 2048 of them. However, I fail synthesis during Floorplanning and receive the error I've attached below.

What exactly is the limit to the # of consecutive DSP slices/macros that can be used in the ZU9EG? Is there a way I can configure my FIRs to increase my utilization?

 

Phase 2.1 Floorplanning
Phase 2.1 Floorplanning | Checksum: 186c9ff7b

Time (s): cpu = 00:14:59 ; elapsed = 00:07:27 . Memory (MB): peak = 9802.258 ; gain = 0.000 ; free physical = 1702 ; free virtual = 73099

The total BRAM utilization is 26.04, the total DSP utilization is 650.2 and the total URAM utilization is 0
A possible reason is high utilization of BRAMs, DSPs, URAMs, or RPMs. Please check user constraints to make sure design is not over-utilized in the constraint areas (if any) keeping in mind some macros require a number of consecutively available sites

Resolved: You'll have to explicitly divide up your DSP slice columns into a custom configuration. In my case, dividing 128 slices into 4 columns of 32 worked. The synthesis tools, even under "Automatic" multi-column support mode, will not divide up your slices such that they will all fit consecutively.
