Primitive: 6-Bit Look-Up Table

• PRIMITIVE_GROUP: CLB
• PRIMITIVE_SUBGROUP: LUT

## Introduction

This design element is a 6-bit look-up table (LUT). This element allows the creation of any logical function with six inputs.

The INIT parameter for the LUT primitive is what gives the LUT its logical value. By default, this value is zero, thus driving the output to a zero regardless of the input values (acting as a ground). However, in most cases a new INIT value must be determined in order to specify the logic function for the LUT primitive. There are at least two methods by which the LUT value can be determined:
• The Logic Table Method: A common method to determine the desired INIT value for a LUT is using a logic table. To do so, simply create a binary logic table of all possible inputs, specify the desired logic value of the output and then create the INIT string from those output values.
• The Equation Method: Another method to determine the LUT value is to define parameters or generics for each input to the LUT that correspond to their listed truth value and use those to build the logic equation you are after. This method is easier to understand once you have grasped the concept and is more self-documenting than the above method. However, this method does require the code to first specify the appropriate parameters or generics.
