19.2.2. Running the Testbench for Two Avalon-MM Masters Slaves

  1. Unzip ug_avalon_verification.zip to a working directory.
  2. For the Quartus Prime Standard Edition software, open <working_dir>/avlmm_2x2_vhdl/avlm_avls_2x2.qsys.
  3. For the Quartus Prime Pro Edition software, specify the <working_dir>/avlmm12x2_vhdl_pro/avlm_avls_2x2.qpf project and <working_dir>/avlmm2x2_vhdl_pro/avlm_avls_2x2.qsys system in the Open System dialog box.
  4. Complete the following steps to generate the testbench:
    1. On the Generate menu, select Generate HDL.
    2. Specify the parameters shown in the following table:
      Table 31.  Generation Parameters
      Parameter Value
      Create HDL design files for synthesis VHDL
      Create timing and resource estimates for third-party EDA synthesis tools Leave this option off
      Create block symbol file (.bsf) Leave this option on
      IP-XACT Leave this option off. (This parameter is only available in the Quartus Prime Pro Edition software.)
      Create simulation model VHDL
      Output Directory
      Path Accept the path specified. (This path is not shown for the Quartus Prime Pro Edition software.)
      Clear output directories for selected generation targets You can leave this parameter off the first time you generate.
    3. Click Generate.
      The Qsys Generate window displays informational messages as it generates the testbench.
    4. Close the Generate window.
  5. To provide versioned libraries for the VHDL RTL simulation, run the following command:
    You must rerun ./update.sh each time you regenerate the testbench.
  6. Start the ModelSim® simulator.
  7. To run the simulation, type the following command in your working directory:
    do run_simulation.tcl
    This command compiles all the required HDL files, elaborates, and runs the simulation.
