AR# 7461: 2.1i COREGEN, VIEWLOGIC: CORE Generator writes out Viewlogic symbol pins in reverse order for Coregen module
2.1i COREGEN, VIEWLOGIC: CORE Generator writes out Viewlogic symbol pins in reverse order for Coregen module
Keywords: view, coregen, symbol, order
General Description: The Viewlogic symbols generated by the CORE Generator in the 2.1i release may have symbol pins attached in reverse order on the
The .vhx file lists the pins as follows:
entity mlt32x8 is port ( a : in std_logic_vector(31 downto 0); b : in std_logic_vector(15 downto 0); clk : in std_logic; p : out std_logic_vector(47 downto 0) ); end mlt32x8;
However, the input pins on the symbol appear in the reverse order with the CLK pin on top.
This is a new problem observed on the Solaris platform with the version of VHDL2SYM shipped with Fusion 1.4.
When Viewlogic is specified as the Vendor in the CORE Generator "Project Options" menu, the CORE Generator creates a temporary .VHD file containing only module ports in it and runs the Viewlogic utility VHDL2SYM to generate a Viewlogic symbol for the CORE Generator module. After generating the symbol, it then renames the .VHD file to module_name.VHX.
Manually edit the pins on the generated symbol using the Viewlogic symbol editor
- Copy the .VHX file produced by Coregen to modulename.VHD and reorder the port list in reverse in the new .VHD file - Run VHDL2SYM manually on this .VHD file as described in (Xilinx Solution #7462)
