Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::insystem_memory_edit

Syntax get_editable_mem_instances [-h | -help] [-long_help] -device_name <device name> -hardware_name <hardware name>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-device_name <device name> Name of the device that holds the editable memory instances
-hardware_name <hardware name> Name of the hardware that connects to the JTAG chain

Retrieve a list of editable memory, ROM, or lpm_constant instances. A list is returned, each element of which shows the configuration of each instance. This element is an another list that specifies the configuration in the following order: <instance index> <depth> <width> <read/write mode> <instance type> <instance name>. The <read/write mode> can be either "RW" or "W"; <instance type> can be either "ROM/RAM" or "CONSTANT". An example showing a list of two instances of different types is shown below: {0 1024 8 RW ROM/RAM mem0} {1 1 32 RW CONSTANT con0} The hardware and device name can be obtained with the get_hardware_names and get_device_names commands from the jtag package. It is recommended that you call this command before the TCL command, begin_memory_edit. Within a memory edit sequence, this command can be applied only to the same device, on which the memory edit sequence has started.

Example Usage
# List information of all editable memories
puts "Information on all editable memories:"
puts "index,depth,width,mode,type,name"

	puts "[lindex $instance 0],[lindex $instance 1],[lindex $instance 2],[lindex $instance 3],[lindex $instance 4],[lindex $instance 5]"
