    Hi all,
    I have a quite simple question:
    Is it possible to set an attribute depending on a generic variable. As an
    example I have the following code. I want to set the attribute
    CLKFX_MULTIPLY to 4 or 8 depending on FastClk. Hoe can I do this?
    thanks peter

    entity Clock_gen is
    generic (Is_FastClk: boolean:=false);
    port (P_50MHZ_CLK : in std_logic;
    end Clock_gen;

    architecture structural of Clock_gen is
    component DCM
    end component;

    attribute CLKFX_MULTIPLY : integer;

    -- if Is_FastClk
    attribute CLKFX_MULTIPLY of U_DCM : label is 4;
    -- else
    attribute CLKFX_MULTIPLY of U_DCM : label is 8;


    U_DCM: DCM

  2. Hi "itsme"!

    Hmm. I'm not sure, bute what about the following:

    gen1: if generic_parameter=1 generate
    -- set you attribute
    end generate;

    gen0: if generic_parameter=0 generate
    -- set you attribute not / an other attribute
    end generate;

    (generic_parameter is of type integer in this example)
