integer overflow in VHDL
Can someone help me why I get the following integer overflow error
entity conv is
port(sum: out std_logic_vector(28 downto 0)
architecture behav of conv is
signal s : integer range 0 to 31 := 31;
begin -- behav
sum <= conv_std_logic_vector((64-2**s) mod 2**29, 29);
Error! integer overflow
File: ./test1.vhd, line = 25, pos = 37
Time: 0 FS + 0
./test1.vhd:25 sum <= conv_std_logic_vector((64-2**s) mod 2**29, 29);
Set "intovf_severity_level" ncsim tcl variable to ignore this error.
Type `help -variable intovf_severity_level` on ncsim> prompt.
The maximum integer that can be used in VHDL is 2**31 -1 which mean that I can never used computations above that like for instance 2**31 itself? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
You pretty much answered why there's an overflow.
The range of the 'integer' type is implementation dependant, but yes, it'll be 32 bits about everywhere
(though that might be 64 bits nowadays with some tools?)
This only means that you will have to go to signed (or unsigned), the size of these is up to you. (Yes they can be a bit harder to read but in this case, it should be obvious anyway):
(I didn't have the ieee.std_logic_arith.all part, so I was missing conv_std_logic_vector; that's the only reason I replaced that)
