Mentor Graphics Library for XACTstep 5.2.1: DECODE16, DECODE8, and DECODE4 library macros are missing DECODE attribute

Description

Keywords: Mentor, EDIF2XNF, DECODE, XACT, 5.2.1

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

Under Mentor Graphics A.4 with XACTstep 5.2.1, the DECODExx symbols do not
have complete DECODE attributes attached to WAND1s under the DECODExx
symbol. When EDIF2XNF processes the DECODE macro with WAND1, the DECODE
property is stripped out.

Solution

To add these properties, you will have to copy both the symbol and
schematic into a seperate sheet and create it as user macro. Once you have
done that, select all WAND1s, then go to right mouse button -> Add Property
-> Add Single Property. Enter DECODE as the property name, and type in
DECODE as property value. You should see DECODE in blue letters being
attached beside each WAND1. Save the schematic and use your own DECODExx
from now on.

Note: The DECODExx library components have been fixed in M1.3.7.
