Altium Designer provides a generic set of FPGA macro components – symbolic representations of blocks of functionality that a user desires to add to an FPGA design. These components are presented to the user as FPGA-ready schematic symbols (or graphical representations in an OpenBus System) that can be instantiated into a design. FPGA-ready schematic components are like traditional PCB-ready components, except instead of the symbol being linked to a PCB footprint, each is linked to a pre-synthesized EDIF model. The pre-synthesized components are supplied as object code entities without having to expose underlying RTL- or netlist-level source code. The system includes multiple libraries providing a comprehensive set of pre-synthesized components, ranging from simple gate-level functional blocks, up through high-level hardware functions.
