[actel] resource usage by entity

Hi ,

I am currently designing a FPGA Actel Proasci3 and I would like to
know the ressource usage (ram/flipflop...) for each of module of the
project , in Altera and Xilinx they report this information easily but
I don't find it in Actel Designer (we also use synplify for synthesis
so it shall be fine to use synplify reporting too)

Thank you for your tips!


Re: [actel] resource usage by entity
I was looking into exactly this today for something.
By default, it seems to display the slowest few nets for each clock
domain, and you can set somewhere how many to show. When I tried the GUI
today I got a list of about 100.

You can right click somewhere and make a user defined "set" and go
through and select a list of nets that you want to have in that set..
and it allows you to filter the search to find nets corresponding to a
particular module.. you can filter it like *mymodule* to exclude
everything else. When I did this it showed the delay information, but
not everything else, I'm still trying to figure out how to get the rest
(what I really want to know for the moment is minimum clock period).
If/when I figure out the rest, I'll report back. Or maybe somebody else
already knows this.

Ahh my bad. Right after I hit "send" I realized you are looking for
resource usage, not timing information.

Well, synplify creates a file called your-design.srr, have you had a
look at this file? It can end up being quite large, but maybe the info
is there.
