What's new in EASE 9.1
VHDL attribute specifications
In Ease 9.1 it is possible to declare attribute values on entities, architectures, instances and nets. The attributes themselves must be declared in packages, for which a use clause must have been added to the entity or architecture. A drop down box will show all visible attributes. For each used attribute a tool tip can show the type and package where the attribute is defined. The attributes are placed in the generated VHDL code just before the start of the architecture, block or generate statement.
Clauses at architecture level
Library clauses, use clauses and context references can now be added to an architecture in the same way as for an entity.
HDL Import improvementsVHDL import now tries to import comment for the following objects:
- Id 597: When moving multiple ports to another side (with a different orientation) they are now placed adjacent of each other.
- Id 1591: Specific comment to document generic/parameter actual value.
- Id 1851: Easier way to revert a unit to an older version. Version restore is now allowed on a unit that is checked in.
- Id 1927: improved support for aliases. It is now possible to add aliases to the HDL Declarations inside a block diagram (not inside an FSM diagram). To be able to support aliases the order in which HDL declarations are generated has changed. They were ordered by type, but are now declared in the same order as they are shown in the dialog.
- Id 1992: Customizable label for meta generic
- Allow table sort by clicking on table header in message windows (verify, lint, VCM status) and object/text search window.
- Tool tip on sticky note in browser.
- Improved search widget behaviour: CTRL+F will no longer close the search widget (it used to toggle), but open it if it was closed, select the text and set keyboard focus. Use escape key to close the widget.
- Added a delay to the file preview button, to be able to move the mouse pointer to the text field without the file contents tooltip appearing immediately.
