Description

Keywords: Fndtn1.5, F1.5i, sp1, FPGA, Express, vhdl, alias, statement, 1081, syntax, error

Urgency: standard

General Description:

Use of the VHDL "alias" command statement may result in syntax error VSS-1081 in
FPGA Express versions up to and including 3.3. FPGA Express may also crash without
this error.

Solution

The "alias" command statement is not supported by FPGA Express 3.3 and earlier.

Workaround: Create a new signal with the name you wish to use as an alias and connect
the "aliased" and original signals together.
