3.1i Foundation ISE: Project Navigator requires top-level entity name to be placed last in file


Keywords: VHDL, entity, hierarchical, multiple entities

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In a hierarchical VHDL design where there are multiple entities per
file, Project Navigator might choose the wrong entity as the top level.
Currently, Project Navigator, picks the last entity in the file as the
top-level module. This can result in incorrect synthesis results.


In order to avoid synthesis issues, users must place the top-level
entity last in the file.
