解决方案

This message is issued when there is a VHDL 'case' statement with 'others' clause; but the 'case' statement is complete even without the 'others' clause.

WHAT NEXT:

Remove the 'others' clause, and re-run XST

EXAMPLE:

Consider the following RTL

case sel is
when "00" => do <= di(3);
when "01" => do <= di(2);
when "10" => do <= di(0);
when "11" => do <= di(1);
when others => null;
end case;
end if;

Here 'sel' is a 2-bit signal and all the 4 possible values of it are already enumerated in the 'case' statement. Therefore the 'others' clause does not really get triggered.
