6.1i Clocking Wizard - The DCM Instance Name field is no longer in the General Setup dialog box

Description

General Description: 

In Architecture Wizard 6.1i, the DCM Instance Name field is no longer available in the General Setup dialog box. As a result, the DCM instance name is no longer user-defined. Instead, the instance name is generated by the Clocking Wizard.

Solution

This is an enhancement to the dialog box to prevent a possible conflict between a user-defined module name and the DCM instance name within the module. 

 

In the 6.1i Clocking Wizard, the instance name is generated by the Clocking Wizard. 

- For a single DCM flow, the generated instance name is DCM_INST. 

- For multiple DCMs flow, the DCM instance name is either DCM_INST1 (for the first instance) or DCM_INST2 (for the second instance).  

 

If you open a 5.1i XAW in the 6.1i Clocking Wizard and it contains a DCM instance name defined by you, your user-defined instance name is preserved.
