AR# 1118: Foundation XVHDL: Synthesis of VHDL causes message: No entity selected.
Foundation XVHDL: Synthesis of VHDL causes message: No entity selected.
In designs with top level vhdl, and multiple vhdl files, the architecture and entity of the top level needs to be specified in the options. If it is not, when the design is synthesized, XVHDL assumes the last vhdl file compiled as the top. This will give a message like:
"No entity was selected, <entity_name> assumed"
In the "Advanced" section of the Synthesis -> Options dialog box, specify the entity and architecture to be synthesized.
