1.7. Simulating the Design

The design provides a testbench for you to verify the design in loopback mode.

The simulation script uses QUARTUS_ROOTDIR environment variable to access Intel simulation libraries. You must set the QUARTUS_ROOTDIR to point to the Quartus® Prime installation path after installation.

Note: If you can't find this environment variable, set the variable manually.

To run the simulation, follow these steps:

  1. Download and restore the design.
  2. Navigate to the a10_llmac_xaui_project\testbench directory.
  3. In the TCL Console window, type the following command:
    do tb_run.tcl
  4. When the simulation completes, the Transcript window displays the statistics of the transmitted packets and received packets generated by the simulator.
