Is there a more elegant way to do the following?

Essentially I am trying to daisy-chain multiple "LED" devices, each with a data-in and data-out port. So do1 will be connected to di2, do2 -> di3... etc.

The way I have it works okay, but I'm wondering if there's a less manual way to connect them. Also, the way I did it gives "multiple names per net" errors. Is there a way you're supposed to connect signals from different buses without generating this error?



It seems like the bus joiner components in the FPGA_Generic library can do what I need, but they don't work with non-FPGA projects.

I can't find any functionality like this for non-FPGA projects.

I had a very similar problem. I found one simpler solution, maybe not entirely elegant, but it works.enter image description here

In my opinion, the "right" way to do this is to instantiate the LED sheet 20 times, and route one to the next explicitly. This may seem more messy, but it explicitly defines a relationship that you're trying to trick the schematic compiler into building.
