Foundation: How to generate a schematic from an XNF file
If you have an XNF netlist (from XABEL, XVHDL, or another source), you can generate a Foundation schematic in order to graphically view nodes during simulation, or to examine the logic that was synthesized from HDL code.
Note: Schematics generated from netlists cannot be used for design implementation. They are for simulation or viewing purposes only.
1) From the Foundation Schematic Capture tool, select File -> Generate Schematic from Netlist.
2) In the dialog box, list files of type Xilinx (*.XNF).
