3.1i Modular Design - Module-only simulation netlist will have wrong port names in most cases


Keywords: modular, module, simulation, simulate, port, names

Urgency: Standard

General Description: In the active module implementation phase, the
module-only simulation netlist produced by "ngdanno -module" will
usually have the wrong port names. Anno creates a port for each NCD
signal that is designated as a module port, and names it after the NCD
signal. However, there is no assurance that the NCD signal name will
match the original port name -- in fact, it will match only if the top-level
wrapper connects a signal with a matching name to each port (from
above). If the top-level wrapper is created via synthesis, this will probably
not be the case.


This problem will be fixed in the first 3.1i quarterly release, currently
scheduled for August, 2000.
