Figure 165. NativeLink Simulation Flow Diagram

Complete the following steps to run an RTL functional simulation:

  1. Open your Quartus Prime project.
  2. On the Tools menu, select Run Simulation Tool, then select RTL Simulation or Gate Level Simulation.
  3. Run Quartus Prime Analysis and Elaboration and re-instantiate control signals that you defined using the In-System Sources and Probe Editor. The In-System Sources and Probe Editor can only access the pins of the device. Consequently, you must route any signal that you want to observe to the top-level of your design.
  4. To monitor additional signals, highlight the desired instances or nodes in Instance, and right-click Add wave.
  5. Select Simulate and then Run.
  6. Specify the simulation duration.
  7. Complete the following steps to restart the simulation:
    1. On the Simulate menu, select restart, then click ok.
      This action clears the existing waves.
    2. Highlight run and select the appropriate options to run the simulation.
