SmartXplorer Translate (ngdbuild) options

Jump to solution

Hi all,

 

with (ISE) SmartXplorer it is possible to run different MAP/PAR strategies in parallel. After the synthesis, smartxplorer applies a Translate (ngdbuild) and the result of translation is used for all MAP/PAR strategies.

 

Is it possible to give smartXplorer some options for the ngdbuild process? In my case, I want to use the

 

-bm <my_bram_structure.bmm>

 

option (which is a ngdbuild option if i call ngdbuild directly). How to do this with smartyplorer?

 

Best regards!

Hi @s9445855

 

You can give seperate command for translate (ngdbuild) and pass the required switches before using the smartxplorer command.

 

Thanks,

Deepika.

Hi @s9445855

 

Have you tried specifying this switch in Translate properties?

Hi vemulad,

 

Thanks for your response. I suppose you mean a switch in a GUI?

I am working on command line and tried to add the -bm directly to the smartyplorer call. This was not successful.

I need a solution for a command line call of smartxplorer.

 

Best regards.

You are right. I was not aware that smartxplorer is able to take ngd as input, I only used the xst generated ncd so far.

 

Thank you!
