Example of Creating a Black Box for a VHDL Custom Variation of a Intel® FPGA IP with the Synplify Software

To specify that the Synopsys® Synplify software should treat the my_pll.vhd file that you created as a black box, refer to the following code sample from the top-level design file. In this example, the top-level design file is pllsource.vhd. To modify the source code for the pllsource.vhd file to define the module name and port type and to specify that the module is a black box, add an empty module declaration to the pllsource.vhd top-level design file as shown in the following code sample:

            library IEEE;
use ieee.std_logic_1164.all;
library synplify;
use synplify.attributes.all;
ENTITY pllsource IS
    inclock, inclocken          : in std_logic;
    data_in1                    : in std_logic_vector(7 downto 0);
    clock0, locked, div2        : out std_logic;
    r_out                       : out std_logic_vector(7 downto 0));
END pllsource;
