It is permitted to connect ports or pins with different widths in IP integrator.
As seen in the following figure, the
bram_addr_a pin of the AXI BRAM controller that is 14-bits wide is
connected to the
addra pin of the Block Memory
Generator that is 32-bits wide. The port width mismatch is not flagged during design
validation; however, a warning is issued during the generation of the block design
output products, as follows:
[BD 41-235] Width mismatch when connecting pin: '/axi_bram_ctrl_0_bram/addra'(32) to net 'axi_bram_ctrl_0_BRAM_PORTA_ADDR'(14) - Only lower order bits will be connected.
The warning indicates that the tool has detected a port width mismatch while connecting the ports or pins, and that only the lower-order bits (the first 14 bits) will be connected.
You will need to evaluate the warning and take appropriate action as needed. Typically, it is okay to ignore this warning message.
