VHDL Architecture and Library Name and Code for Model Reference Parameters

This page describes parameters that reside in the HDL Code Generation > Global Settings > General tab of the Configuration Parameters dialog box.

VHDL architecture name

Specify the architecture name for your DUT in the generated HDL code.

Settings

Default: 'rtl'

Specify the VHDL architecture name for your DUT in the generated HDL code as a character vector.

Command-Line Information

Property: VHDLArchitectureName
Type: character vector
Default: 'rtl'

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

For example:

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

    makehdl(gcb,'VHDLArchitectureName','_rtl2')
  • When you use hdlset_param, you can set the parameter on the model and then generate HDL code using makehdl.

    hdlset_param(gcs,'VHDLArchitectureName','_rtl2')
    makehdl('myDUT')

VHDL library name

Specify the target library name for the generated VHDL® code.

Settings

Default: 'work'

Target library name for generated VHDL code.

Command-Line Information

Property: VHDLLibraryName
Type: character vector
Default: 'work'

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

For example:

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

    makehdl(gcb,'VHDLLibraryName','__work1')
  • When you use hdlset_param, you can set the parameter on the model and then generate HDL code using makehdl.

    hdlset_param(gcs,'VHDLLibraryName','__work1')
    makehdl('myDUT')

Generate VHDL code for model references into a single library

Specify whether VHDL code generated for model references is in a single library, or in separate libraries.

Settings

Default: Off

On

Generate VHDL code for model references into a single library.

Off

For each model reference, generate a separate VHDL library.

Dependency

This option is enabled when the target language (specified by the Language option) is VHDL.

Command-Line Information

Property: UseSingleLibrary
Type: character vector
Value: 'on' | 'off'
Default: 'off'

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

For example:

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

    makehdl(gcb,'UseSingleLibrary','on')
  • When you use hdlset_param, you can set the parameter on the model and then generate HDL code using makehdl.

    hdlset_param(gcs,'UseSingleLibrary','on')
    makehdl('myDUT')
