    Modifying value of symbol pin property "Signal Type" in a tsg file. Reply

    I'm generating a symbol from VHDL code using the tsg generator. Is it possible to modify the value of the symbol pin property "Signal Type" on a pin by pin basis from within the tsg file? The guidelines given in the TSG Symbol Description File Structure (comphelp/appB) appear to indicate that it is not possible. If it can be done, does anyone know the syntax; if not, is there any work around that doesn't involve editing the symbol afterwards?

    Thanks for any and all help.

     Roger.

    Roger,

    This doesn't appear to be supported and doesn't seem to have been requested either.  I can see (from a quick look in the source code) that there appears to be the ability to set sigType, powerSensitivity and groundSensitivity but in the symbolProps section - which seems a bit odd to me, as these would always be pin-specific.

    So please contact customer support - I think we'll need to enhance this.

    That said, it would be easy enough to set the sigType attribute on the net for each terminal after the symbol has been created using SKILL.

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi Andrew,

     Thanks for the reply; it confirms what I suspected. Yes, we have a SKILL script that modifies the property retrospectively, but it would obviously make more sense to do that modifying at symbol generation, so I'll put in an enhancement request.

    Roger.
