XPLA Professional: Properties for nodes not at the top level of a schematic.

General Description: How do I specify properties for nodes in
a schematic that are not at the top level of the schematic?


If the node is on the top-level of the schematic, the name given to the
node in the schematic can be used in the control file. However, if the
node is down some levels in the hierarchy, then the path name of the
signal should be used in the control file. Note, however, that if you
examine the *.ph1 file or the *.ann file to see if the node has been kept,
the name of the node may be different depending on the length of the
hierarchical path. Long names are shortened and the *.xrf file states
what is the new, shorter hierarchical name.

In the example below, it is desirable to keep nodes in the schematic that
are in a block called INCREMENT. The control file would be (please
note the spacing):


The *.xrf file states:

When looking in the *.ph1 or *.ann file to see if the nodes were kept,
the nodes C_0_CONT_A, C_0_CONT_B, and C_0_CONT_C would
be found.
