Altera to Xilinx
I have my code synthezied to an Altera FPGA and I want to change to a Xilinx
FPGA. What Problems or Task have to be managed?
Can anybody help me?

One difference I found was that the Altera block-RAM implementation allowed
async reads while the Xilinx version supported sync reads only. This can
cause truble depending on your desing. If you infer a sync write-async read
RAM in Xilinx it will be implemented in distributed RAM instead of
block-RAMs. I also seem to recall that the Altera FIFO implementation had a
data-counter while the Xilinx version supported only the empty/full flags.
Xilinx FIFOs can't hold the output data indefinitely (due to the sync RAM
read behind the scenes) so you might have to add another layer of
registers/latches, again, depeding on your desing.
