Xilinx Netlist Format

(language, electronics)
(XNF) A Hardware Description Language for electronic circuit design, developed by Xilinx, Inc..

Xilinx-developed tools use XNF and handle the details of the FPGA architecture. Converters are available for a number of widely-used HDLs - for example Verilog (xnf2ver) - so that designers can use familiar tools to develop Logic Cell Array designs. In addition, XNF can be converted to the input language of different logic simulators.

In addition to its standard interfaces for all major FPGA and CPLD vendors, Capture now has direct support for the Xilinx netlist format (XNF).
The new products, called VBAK/VITAL and VBAK/SST, each generate industry-standard VHDL from conventional Xilinx Netlist Format (XNF) files.
As a result, IRL equipment using this FPGA-based solution can support PPP over SONET/SDH at 155 Mbps as well as 622 Mbpse today in Xilinx netlist formats.
