Hi,

I have a register array with each register having (pointer & data), now I hope to display each of two parts using 2 different names for easy reading in simulation.

Here is code defining the register array R:

type R_Type is array(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(POINTER_BITS + DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

signal R : R_Type;

alias P1 : it shows R array part of (DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

alias P2 : it shows R array part of (POINTER_BITS-1 downto DATA_BITS);

How to write the 2 alias statements in VHDL 2002 or 2008?

Thank you.

Weng

Here is my version for the answer:

type P1_Type array(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

alias P1 : P1_Type := R(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

It should work on both 2002/2008 VHDL.

Thank you.

"Should" work??? Haven't you tested it?

Hi Rick,

You have been the most famous contributor in FPGA and VHDL group for more than 10 years. If you answer, there is a problem.

Here is a correction version:

type P1_Type array(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

alias P1 : P1_Type := R(0 to R_SIZE)(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

Currently I have no Modelsim working and have no means to test. If you are kind enough, please test it. I think it SHOULD work.

Thank you.

Hi Rick,

You have been the most famous contributor in FPGA and VHDL group for more than 10 years. If you answer, there is a problem.

First, don't assume that a "frequent" contributor means someone who knows anything. Then notice I only asked a question. I didn't say there was anything wrong.

Here is a correction version:

type P1_Type array(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

alias P1 : P1_Type := R(0 to R_SIZE)(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

Currently I have no Modelsim working and have no means to test. If you are kind enough, please test it. I think it SHOULD work.

type P1_Type array(0 to R_SIZE) of unsigned(DATA_BITS-1 downto 0);

You can download a copy of nearly any FPGA vendor's tools and use whichever simulator they include. I would run it for you, but I am pretty busy at the moment. I'm with a friend who has gone through surgery and I have business tasks to deal with. Sorry I can't help more.
