AR# 5974: Foundation schematic F1.5is1 - resets synthesis options when you push into a HDL macro
Foundation schematic F1.5is1 - resets synthesis options when you push into a HDL macro
KEYWORDS: schematic, hdl, macro, synthesis options, Express, foundation
Having created your HDL macro and synthesised it with the options you specified, if you then use the hierarchy button to push back into the HDL file from a top level schematic and make some changes, the options you previously choose have been reset to the default synthesis options.
There are several ways to get round this:
1. Reset the options everytime you push into the macro from the schematic.
2. Open the HDL code from the project manager, resynthesis and update from the HDL editor.
3. Use the update macro option available on the synthesis tab in the Foundation Project Manager window.
