3.1i Foundation ISE: Symbol generator does not preserve the case of the Verilog modules


Keywords: Symbol Generator, module, verilog, case preserve

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When the "Create Schematic Symbol" process is run on
a Verilog Module, the component names are generated
as lower-case names. This can result in synthesis errors
because the associated components will not be found.


Case sensitivity can be enforced by doing the following:

1- Open the schematic which contains the symbol.
2- Select Edit -> Symbol and click on the symbol. This
will open the Symbol Editor.
3- Select Edit -> Attributes -> Symbol Attributes and
click on the symbol.
4- In the Symbol Attributes dialog, select VeriModel
and enter the case sensitive name and hit enter.
5- Save the symbol and exit.
