How to make your own FPGA Port Plug-In Components
If you have ever experienced the pain of diagnosing an FPGA project design error down to an incorrectly defined IO signal or constraint mismatch, then you will appreciate the concept of Port-Plugins. Port-Plugins are a convenient way to specify the correctly named and complete set of signal IO connections associated with specific peripherals interfacing with an FPGA.
While you may already be familiar with the Port-Plugin libraries specific to all NanoBoard products, did you know that you can easily create Port-Plugins for your own custom PCBs and third-party evaluation boards? Have a look at this Design Secret video to find out how.
