8.2.1. Simulation Scripts

The Quartus Prime software generates three simulation scripts during project generation for four different third party simulation tools—Cadence, Synopsys, Aldec, and Mentor Graphics.

The simulation scripts reduce the number of files that you need to compile separately before simulating a design. These scripts are located in three separate folders under the <project directory>\<varitation_name>_sim directory, each named after the names of the simulation tools. The example designs also provide equivalent scripts after you run the .tcl script from the project located in the \<variation_name>_example_design\simulation directory.

The order of the files in the simulation scripts is important. Ensure that you maintain the files in order, to avoid error messages and warning messages during simulation. If you choose not to use the Intel-generated simulation scripts in your simulation environment, you must maintain the specified file order when compiling the memory controller with the user-generated simulation script.
