synth_ecp5 - synthesis for ECP5 FPGAs

    synth_ecp5 [options]

This command runs synthesis for ECP5 FPGAs.

    -top <module>
        use the specified module as top module

    -blif <file>
        write the design to the specified BLIF file. writing of an output file
        is omitted if this parameter is not specified.

    -edif <file>
        write the design to the specified EDIF file. writing of an output file
        is omitted if this parameter is not specified.

    -json <file>
        write the design to the specified JSON file. writing of an output file
        is omitted if this parameter is not specified.

    -run <from_label>:<to_label>
        only run the commands between the labels (see below). an empty
        from label is synonymous to 'begin', and empty to label is
        synonymous to the end of the command list.

    -noflatten
        do not flatten design before synthesis

    -dff
        run 'abc'/'abc9' with -dff option

    -retime
        run 'abc' with '-dff -D 1' options

    -noccu2
        do not use CCU2 cells in output netlist

    -nodffe
        do not use flipflops with CE in output netlist

    -nobram
        do not use block RAM cells in output netlist

    -nolutram
        do not use LUT RAM cells in output netlist

    -nowidelut
        do not use PFU muxes to implement LUTs larger than LUT4s

    -asyncprld
        use async PRLD mode to implement ALDFF (EXPERIMENTAL)

    -abc2
        run two passes of 'abc' for slightly improved logic density

    -abc9
        use new ABC9 flow (EXPERIMENTAL)

    -vpr
        generate an output netlist (and BLIF file) suitable for VPR
        (this feature is experimental and incomplete)

    -nodsp
        do not map multipliers to MULT18X18D
