Thinking outside the flow: Creating customized backend tools for Xilinx based designs
2007 (English)In: 4th annual FPGAworld Conference, Stockholm, 2007, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper is intended to serve as an introduction to how to build a customized backend tool for a Xilinx based design flow. A Python based library called PyXDL is presented which allows a user to manipulate XDL files which contain a placed and routed design. Three different tools are presented which uses this library, ranging from a simple resource utilization viewer to a tool which will insert a logic analyzer into an already routed design, thus avoiding a costly complete rerun of the place and route tool.
