XABEL: AHDL2X will hang at "processing equations..." with wide buses.
In processing an xabel design, you might see a probelm like this:
AHDL2X ABEL-HDL Processor
Xilinx-ABEL 5.12 Copyright 1992-1994 Data I/O Corp. All Rights Reserved.
and it never makes further progress. This can be due to a
limitation of XABEL in handling larger width counters, adders,
The @CARRY directive allows the reduction of the amount of
logic required for processing large arithmetic functions, by specifying the maximum bit width.
Xabel can handle up to 8 bits without problems. To force xabel
to break a design up into 8 bit sections use this directive:
under the EQUATIONS keyword.
This will force XABEL to generate 8-bit functions only.
