6.1i ISE, ECS - Can a Foundation (Aldec) schematic be converted into an ECS schematic for ISE?

Description


General Description:

I would like to convert a Foundation Schematic Project into an ISE schematic project. Is this possible?

Solution


Foundation Classic (Aldec) schematics cannot be read or converted by the any program in the Foundation ISE tool suite. However, Foundation Classic schematics can be exported to a VHDL netlist in Project Manager. The resulting ".vhd" file may then be included as a source file in ISE Project Navigator.



Alternatively, Foundation Classic schematics can be read by Aldec's Active HDL program, which will export an EDIF netlist that may be used as a source file in either ISE Alliance or Foundation version.
