Resolution function...

Hello,

I am trying to implement a resolution function for std_logic_vector in VHDL... Synthesize is ok but behavioral simulation gives me errors...

I declared

signal a_temp : res_a STD_LOGIC_VECTOR (3 DOWNTO 0);

In my main code, i tried to assign different values to a_temp ('res_a' is resolution function). Then i defined a package with the function 'res_a' in it as follows:

library IEEE;
use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.all;

package resolution_deneme is

type bit_4_array is array (natural range <>) of std_logic_vector(3 downto 0);

-- Declare functions and procedure

function res_a ( input_a : bit_4_array) return std_logic_vector;


end resolution_deneme;


package body resolution_deneme is


function res_a ( input_a : bit_4_array) return std_logic_vector is

variable a_temp : std_logic_vector(3 downto 0);

begin


-- do something


return a_temp;

end res_a;

end resolution_deneme;



As I said before synthesize is ok, but behavioral simulation gives me the following error:

Signal cannot be unconstrainedERROR:Simulator:777 - Static elaboration of top level VHDL design unit test in library work failed

And the error points the signal declaration line:

signal a_temp : res_a STD_LOGIC_VECTOR (3 DOWNTO 0);

What do you think the problem is? Did i make mistake in defining the resolution function?

Thank you
Mete

Re: Resolution function...

std_logic_vector is a resolved type. There's no need to write a resolution function for it.

----------------------------Yes, I do this for a living.
