Tip: The following error occurs during implementation when the Vivado Design Suite is unable to locate the EDIF netlist associated with the blackbox. This can be fixed by defining the EDIF_EXTRA_SEARCH_PATHS:
“ERROR: [Opt 31-30] Blackbox module11 is driving pin I of primitive cell OBUF_inst. The blackbox cannot be found in the existing library.”
