AR# 2639: Mentor Graphics Library for XACTstep 5.2.1: DECODE16, DECODE8, and DECODE4 library macros are missing DECODE attribute
Mentor Graphics Library for XACTstep 5.2.1: DECODE16, DECODE8, and DECODE4 library macros are missing DECODE attribute
Keywords: Mentor, EDIF2XNF, DECODE, XACT, 5.2.1
Under Mentor Graphics A.4 with XACTstep 5.2.1, the DECODExx symbols do not have complete DECODE attributes attached to WAND1s under the DECODExx symbol. When EDIF2XNF processes the DECODE macro with WAND1, the DECODE property is stripped out.
To add these properties, you will have to copy both the symbol and schematic into a seperate sheet and create it as user macro. Once you have done that, select all WAND1s, then go to right mouse button -> Add Property -> Add Single Property. Enter DECODE as the property name, and type in DECODE as property value. You should see DECODE in blue letters being attached beside each WAND1. Save the schematic and use your own DECODExx from now on.
Note: The DECODExx library components have been fixed in M1.3.7.
