Unformatted text preview: D. E. Troxel Rev. May 5, 2002 Setup a maxplus2.ini file in your home directory somehow. This probably will happen automatically when you run max2win. The command is max2win which should be run in the background. One may have to run maxplus2 first to get a maxplus2.ini file in your home directory. You may get a pop up menu about fonts. If you do then click OK (what else?). max2win& This will take a long time to load. It should be quicker on the utlra 5 servers in the digital lab. The steps are: 1. Compile a top level .vhd file. 2. Run a simulation. 3. Select a device. 4. Rerun the compiler to fit the design. Step 1 - Compile a top level .vhd file. 1.1 Select a top level xxx.vhd file. e.g. fulladd.vhd Beware - xxx.vhd must have an entity xxx defined in it. Also, xxx must be a legal VHDL identifier. Click on file->open or type ctrl+O A window pops up. You double click to get the right directory and click to highlight fulladd.vhd and click on ok. This pops up a text editor window with the file in it. I always use emacs as my text editor but you can use this one if you wish. 1.2 Set your project to this top level file. Click on file->project->set project to current file or type ctrl+shift+J 1.3 Compile your file. maxplus2 will automatically find dependent files (if they are in the same folder). This is a plus in that you do not have to deal with them separately. It is a minus in that it is not a good idea to have multiple architectures for the same entity....
