Document Table of Contents Component Instantiation—Explicit Binding Instantiation

You can bind a component to an entity in several mechanisms. In an explicit binding indication, you bind a component instance to a specific entity.

The following shows the binding instantiation method for VHDL:

entity entity1 is
end entity entity1;
package components is
component entity1 is
port map (...);
end component entity1;
end package components;
entity top_entity is
end entity top_entity;
use lib1.components.all;
architecture arch of top_entity is
-- Explicitly bind instance I1 to entity1 from lib1
for I1: entity1 use entity lib1.entity1
port map(...);
end for;
I1: entity1 port map(...);
end architecture arch;
