3.9.2. Third-Party Simulation Tools

Intel provides the Mentor Graphics ModelSim* - Intel® FPGA Edition simulator with the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. You can also purchase the ModelSim* - Intel® FPGA Edition or a full license of the ModelSim software to support large designs and achieve faster simulation performance. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software generates both functional and timing netlist files for ModelSim and other supported third-party simulators.

Use the simulator version that your Intel® Quartus® Prime software version supports for best results. You must also use the model libraries provided with your Intel® Quartus® Prime software version. Libraries can change between versions, which might cause a mismatch with your simulation netlist.
