Keywords: Metamor, XNF, XVHDL, Simulate
How can I functionally simulate a VHDL design with instantiated XNF modules in it?
In order for Foundation to be able to functionally simulate an instantiated XNF module, the XNF netlist must be part of the project library. To add it to the project library, go into the Schematic Editor, and select Hierarchy -> Import Netlist... Choose the XNF file which is instantiated in the VHDL code. (Note: even if you do not use a schematic in the design, you must enter the Schematic Editor to be able to import the XNF netlist.)
Now, after the VHDL design is synthesized, you may go directly into the Functional Simulator to simulate the design.
