Connection Rules

The following rules are applied when connecting by location.

  1. Any named scalar net can connect to any other named (or unnamed) scalar net. A scalar net can have any number of associated names, each of which is a valid target for connect by name.

  2. If a scalar net connects to a non-scalar net, the scalar bit will connect to each bit of the non-scalar net.

  3. A net connecting to a vectored instance terminal must have a width equal to one of the following:

  4. Named multi-contact nets cannot connect to incompatible nets. Two named nets are ``compatible'' if one is a ``tap'' of the other. This will be described in the next section. Violations generate an error message and no connection is made.
