General Description:
How do I pass the new STEPPING attribute that will access the enhanced multiplier speed?


Select the "stepping" speed grade for the Virtex-II part, then add the following to your HDL code:


library ieee;
library synplify;
use ieee.std_logic_1164.all;
use ieee.numeric_std.all;
use synplify.attributes.all;

entity mult_test is
port ( <port_list>);

attribute xc_props of mult_test : entity is "CONFIG STEPPING=1";
end entity;


module mult_test (<port_list>) /*synthesis xc_props="CONFIG STEPPING=1"*/;



For more information about the STEPPING attribute, please see (Xilinx Answer 14339).
