Recompilation with MIF changes only

Thomasu

Hello

I'm doing FPGA emulation of digital sections of chips prior to manufacturing.

My architecture is as follows:

-- an embedded processor,  its MIF file for the software (not NIOS) and its peripherals

-- the RTL of the device to emulate

The time required to process the process is roughly  1h.

Sometimes I only need to update the MIF (to correct SW bugs..) and the whole thing goes for a complete compilation, to me this really is unnecessary:

-- as the size of the RAM where the MIF goes is always the same

-- never any other  design change

 

How could I make this faster?

 

Thanks for your advice

Hi @Thomasu 

 

I believe you are asking how to update the MIF without a complete compilation.

You may refer to the KDB below:

There also a similar forum case on this as well, you may refer this as guidance:
