Extracting FPGA architecture file from Chip Planner

I am playing around with Agilex device(AGRB014R24A3E3VR0).

I found that the device looks really regular; the left three clock sectors are

almost identical and the right three clock sectors are almost identical.

Is there any way to extract resource composition from Chip Planner?

For instance, I noticed that there's "Find" functionality that if I try to find

"LAB*", it outputs all the LABs. I wonder if there's way to export this find output

as a file.

Also, I guess there should be some hardware architecture file for all the devices.

If I can extract resource distribution for a certain device from such file,

that would be helpful too.

 

Thanks.

Sorry, there isn't any such option available to export the information from Chipplanner.

Hi,


The general architecture description for a device is provided in the documentation for the device and there is a whole bunch of them based on which type of resource you are looking for. For Agilex 7, please refer to the following documentation page:


https://www.intel.in/content/www/in/en/products/details/fpga/agilex/7/docs.html


Feel free to apply filter based on the area of documentation. 


You can find information on where each of you design block is placed from the _fit.rpt.

Thanks for the reply.

My question was, how can we extract resource composition of a specific device.

Below is a screenshot of a sample Agilex 7 series device, and the resource columns(from left to right) are 

HSSI AIBND RX, LAB, LAB, LAB, LAB, M20K, LAB, and so on.

I wonder if there's a way to extract this info without hand-extracting from the Chip Planner.

I found the "Find" functionality above is useful. Is there any way to export the results to a file and run the "Find" command in tcl?

@Ash_R_Intel 

Thanks for the reply.

It's sad that what we can easily get from the gui isn't available as a script ;-(

The feature should be really useful to analyze the device.
