2.2.6. Viewing Simulation Messages
For example, ModelSim may return the following error:
# ** Error: C:/altera_trn/DUALPORT_TRY/simulation/modelsim/DUALPORT_TRY.vho(31): (vcom-1136) Unknown identifier "stratixiv"
In this case, type the following command:
The following description appears:
# vcom Message # 1136: # The specified name was referenced but was not found. This indicates # that either the name specified does not exist or is not visible at # this point in the code.
If your design includes deep levels of hierarchy, and the Maintain hierarchy EDA tools option is turned on, this may result in a large number of module instances in post-fit or post-map netlist. This condition can exceed the Questa* Intel® FPGA Edition instance limitation.
To avoid exceeding any Questa* Intel® FPGA Edition instance limit, turn off Maintain hierarchy to reduce the number of modules instances to 1 in the post-fit or post-map netlist. To access this option, click Assignments > Settings > EDA Tool Settings > More Settings.
