Document Table of Contents Finding Logical Library Names in Simulation Library Compiler Output

After you generate the simulation script using the Simulation Library Compiler, you may need to inspect the script to identify the logical library names for use with your elaboration command (vsim).

To identify the logical library names for Intel® Quartus® Prime simulation libraries in the generated script, search for all of the lines that begin with vmap, such as the following line:

vmap altera_ver "./verilog_libs/altera_ver"

The first argument to vmap is the logical library name (altera_ver). The second argument is the physical directory where the library content is stored. This second argument is irrelevant for Questa* Intel® FPGA Edition because you do not run the command.

Questa* Intel® FPGA Edition installation includes its own library mapping in the modelsim.ini file. This file maps the above logical library names to physical directories within the installation path. Therefore when you run elaboration command vsim -L altera_ver in Questa* Intel® FPGA Edition, the tool locates the correct physical library corresponding to logical library altera_ver.
