Description

Keywords: netlist, NGC, EDIF

If I have an EDIF/NGC netlist file, are there any tools that can generate a black box wrapper for the netlist?

Solution

Following the steps below in the Project Navigator will help generate a wrapper.

1. Create a new ISE project with top-level source type as "EDIF" or "NGC/NGO."
2. Add the "EDIF" or "NGC" file to the project.
3. Run "Generate Post-Translate Simulation Model" from "Implementation -> Translate" in the processes window.
4. Open the simulation model file, keep port information and remove the rest.
