4.1i ECS - CORE Generator symbols cannot be edited in ECS.

Description

Keywords: ECS, CORE Generator, COREGen, edit, symbol, EDN, ASY

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
CORE Generator symbols cannot be edited in ECS; all CORE Generator symbols are associated with the ASY file, which the symbol editor cannot edit.

Solution

To edit COREGen symbols in ECS, delete the .asy file associated with the symbol you wish to edit. ECS will then issue a message reporting that the symbol has gone out of date. Choose "OK". The symbol can then be edited, as the .sym file is now being used.

It should be noted that no symbol pin changes will be reflected in the EDN file representing the core; this will result in NGDBuild errors.
