Importer

The SystemRDL Importer class provides some base utilities for constructing your own register model tree from an external source. For a more detailed walkthrough, see the Importing from JSON tutorial.

class systemrdl.importer.RDLImporter(compiler: RDLCompiler)

Base class for external parsers to import data into the register model

Parameters:

compiler (RDLCompiler) – Reference to compiler instance where the import is being performed.

import_file(path: str) None

Importer entry point.

Extend this function to read the file and perform the import. Be sure to call super().import_file(path)

Parameters:

path (str) – Path to file

add_child(parent: Component, child: Component) None

Add a child component instance to an existing parent definition or instance

New in version 1.16.

assign_property(component: Component, prop_name: str, value: Any, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) None

Assign a property to a component.

Parameters:
  • prop_name (str) – Name of the SystemRDL property

  • value – Value to assign

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) – Optionally provide a more detailed source reference object associated with this assignment

register_root_component(definition: Component) None

Register a component definition with the root namespace so that it is visible to other compiled files.

Parameters:

definition (comp.Component) – Component definition to register

lookup_root_component(type_name: str) Optional[Component]

Lookup a component definition from the root namespace. If the type name is not defined, returns None

compiler

Reference to the current compiler instance

default_src_ref

Source reference used by default when not specified in importer model construction methods By default, this simply points to the file currently being imported, without any line offset information

msg

Reference to the compiler message handler

Create Definitions

New in version 1.16.

Use these methods to create a named definition, and instantiate one or more times using the methods described in the following section.

If type_name is not specified, then an anonymous definition is created and can therefore only be instantiated once.

RDLImporter.create_field_definition(type_name: Optional[str] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Field
Parameters:
  • type_name (str) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component definition

Return type:

Field

RDLImporter.create_reg_definition(type_name: Optional[str] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Reg
Parameters:
  • type_name (str) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component definition

Return type:

Reg

RDLImporter.create_regfile_definition(type_name: Optional[str] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Regfile
Parameters:
  • type_name (str) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component definition

Return type:

Regfile

RDLImporter.create_addrmap_definition(type_name: Optional[str] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Addrmap
Parameters:
  • type_name (str) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component definition

Return type:

Addrmap

RDLImporter.create_mem_definition(type_name: Optional[str] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Mem
Parameters:
  • type_name (str) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component definition

Return type:

Mem

Instantiate Definitions

New in version 1.16.

These methods take a component definition, and create an instance.

If given a named component definition, then an instantiated copy is returned. If the given component definition is anonymous, then it is converted to an instantiation in-place. Anonymous definitions can only be instantiated once.

To complete the instantiation, you must attach it to a valid parent component using add_child().

RDLImporter.instantiate_field(comp_def: Field, inst_name: str, bit_offset: int, bit_width: int, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Field
Parameters:
  • comp_def (comp.Field) –

  • inst_name (str) –

  • bit_offset (int) –

  • bit_width (int) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component instance

Return type:

Field

RDLImporter.instantiate_reg(comp_def: Reg, inst_name: str, addr_offset: int, array_dimensions: Optional[List[int]] = None, array_stride: Optional[int] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Reg
Parameters:
  • comp_def (comp.Reg) –

  • inst_name (str) –

  • addr_offset (int) –

  • array_dimensions (int) –

  • array_stride (int) –

  • src_ref (SourceRefBase) –

Returns:

Component instance

Return type:

Field

RDLImporter.instantiate_regfile(comp_def: Regfile, inst_name: str, addr_offset: int, array_dimensions: Optional[List[int]] = None, array_stride: Optional[int] = None, src_ref: Optional[SourceRefBase] = None) Regfile
