2.10.3.2. Custom Simulation Scripts

You can automate simulations by creating customized scripts. You can generate scripts manually. In addition, you can use NativeLink to generate a simulation script as a template and then make the necessary changes. The following table shows a list of script directories NativeLink generates.

Table 227.   Custom Simulation Scripts for Third Party RTL Simulation

Simulator

Simulation File

Use

Mentor Graphics* ModelSim* or QuestaSim*

/simulation/ modelsim/modelsim_setup.do

Or

mentor/msim_setup.tcl

Source directly with your simulator. Run do msim_setup.tcl, followed by ld_debug. If you have more than one IP, each IP has a dedicated msim_setup.tcl file. Make sure that you combine all the files included in the msim_setup.tcl files into one common msim_setup.tcl file.

Aldec* Riviera Pro

/simulation/ aldec/rivierapro_setup.tcl

Source directly with your simulator

.

Synopsys* VCS

/simulation/synopsys/vcs/vcs_setup.sh

Add your testbench file name to this file to pass the testbench file to VCS using the –file option. If you specify a testbench file for NativeLink and do not choose to simulate, NativeLink generates a script that runs VCS.

Synopsys VCS MX

/simulation/synopsys/vcsmx/vcsmx_setup.sh

Run this script at the command line using quartus_sh–t <script> . Any testbench you specify with NativeLink is included in this script.
