VHDL file extension

File name extension for generated VHDL files

Model Configuration Pane: Global Settings / General


Specify the file name extension for generated VHDL files.


To enable this option, set the target language to VHDL. You can specify the target language by using the Language parameter in the HDL Code Generation pane.


.vhd (default) | character vector

Default: .vhd

This field specifies the file name extension for generated VHDL files.


To set this property, use the functions hdlset_param or makehdl. To view the property value, use the function hdlget_param.

For example, you can specify this property when you generate HDL code for the symmetric_fir subsystem inside the sfir_fixed model using either of these methods.

  • Pass the property as an argument to the makehdl function.

    makehdl('sfir_fixed/symmetric_fir', ... 
  • When you use hdlset_param, you can set the parameter on the model and then generate HDL code using makehdl.
