4.9.1. Generating IP Simulation Files

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software optionally generates the functional simulation model, any testbench (or example design), and vendor-specific simulator setup scripts when you generate an IP core from IP Catalog. To specify options for the generation of IP simulation files:
  1. To specify your supported simulator and options for IP simulation file generation, click Assignment > Settings > EDA Tool Settings > Simulation.
  2. To parameterize a new IP variation, click Tools > IP Catalog.

  3. To enable generation of simulation files and generate the IP core synthesis and simulation files, in the parameter editor, click Generate HDL. The Generation dialog box appears.
  4. Under Simulation, specify Verilog or VHDL for the Create simulation model option.
  5. Turn on or off the ModelSim, VCS-MX, VCS, Riviera-Pro, or Xcelium option to generate simulator setup scripts for the simulation tool. If you turn on no simulator options, the scripts generate for all simulators.
  6. Click the Generate button. Platform Designer generates the simulation models and setup scripts for your system or IP component in the ( <your_project>/<ip name>sim/<vendor> directory.
