Does anyone have experience with modular design flow or PlanAhead? Could you answer my questions related to it:1) I know that all IO ports in modular design flow have to be placed on the top level. But does it mean that all FFs/tri-state buffers I want to have in IOBs have to be inferred on the top level as well or these logic can stay locally in modules?
2) Do I understand it correctly that PlanAhead is just graphical interface to modular design and partial reconfiguration functionality (plus some other features)?3) Do you know if evaluation version of PlanAhead is fully functional?
4) Is this modular design or PlanAhead really useful and not one of toy tools?
I would appreciate sharing your experience,
