8.1i Modular Design - How can I reuse a module instantiated twice?

Description

In Modular Design, is it possible to use a module twice? If so, how?

Solution

Yes, this is possible, but only through duplicating the module and renaming it. The following example uses a design named Top and the block Add instantiated twice: 

 

1. Change one of the Add module names to Add1. 

2. Synthesize Top, Add and Add1 (the output from XST would be 3 netlists). 

3. Run Modular Design as usual on the two modules, Add and Add1.
