Info request about Synplify and Foundation usage

Started by Unknown September 16, 2008
Dear all,
I'm try to use VHDL code with some old XC5202PQ100-6 part that I've
from my old design. Old design was did by using Foundation 2.1i and
Schematic Entry, now I'm searching a way to use the VHDL coding to do
some simple example and learn VHDL. My Foundation tools was only a
base installation then I don't have the Express feature then no VHDL
compiler will available, but I've the Synplify 9.2 tool and I can make
the mapping of VHDL circuit. Now I'm asking if there is a way to
export the mapped file trough the netlist description (xnf, edf) into
the old Foundation and merge this device with other device into the
Schematic Editor. In other word there is a way to import into the
Foundation tool a device, like a black box then into the device
library and then use it for the design flow implement stage?

Thanks for reply.

Regards
Grinch
