I used a string in a generic with the ‘&’ operator (as shown in the code fragment below), but it does not concatenate (ignores the part after the &)

Do you know if concatenation is not allowed for generics?

entity mux is

generic (

PartNo : string := "12345" & “ABC”


port (

TxClk : in std_logic;

Gives PartNo as “12345”
