Vivado active netlists limit

Hello everybody,

Whenever I try to Synthesize my design I get the following error:

[Common 17-70] Application Exception: Number of active netlists exceeds limit (255)

I looked everywhere I could, but I didn't find any information about what does this limit mean, and how to avoid this error.
Is this "active netlists limit" just a limitation of the software, or is it related to the capacity of the FPGA I'm using? Is there any way to avoid it, or do I have to redo my design in order to reduce the number of netlists?

Thanks in advance for the help,

Jordi

Re: Vivado active netlists limit

Which Vivado version are you using?

Are you using a lot netlists (EDIF/NGC) in your design?

In which process did you receive this error? Looks like the error did not happen in Synthesis but at the beginning of Implementation, correct?

Can you post a screenshot of the Vivado GUI when this error occurs?

 

Thanks

Vivian

Problem solved!

I was using Vivado 2016.4, WebPACK version. Then I installed Vivado 2017.1 and applied the License for the Desing Editions version, and the problem just vanished, without modifying anything on the design.

Thanks
