IP: DSP, LDPC

Error: (vlog-13067) ./../../src/altera_ldpc_pkg.sv(1.0): Syntax error, unexpected non-printable character with the hex value '0x8b'.

Description

Due to a problem with the LDPC Intel® FPGA IP in Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version 17.1 targetting Intel® Stratix® 10, you may observe the above error when compiling the simulation design example generated by the IP configured with WiMedia 1.5 standard and encoder mode in Modelsim. 

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem, comment out the following lines in the msim_setup.tcl:

1. eval  vlog -sv $USER_DEFINED_VERILOG_COMPILE_OPTIONS $USER_DEFINED_COMPILE_OPTIONS "$QSYS_SIMDIR/../src/altera_ldpc_pkg.sv"                                       -work work

2. eval  vlog -sv $USER_DEFINED_VERILOG_COMPILE_OPTIONS $USER_DEFINED_COMPILE_OPTIONS "$QSYS_SIMDIR/../src/altera_ldpc_wimedia_enc.sv"                               -work work

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future version of the Intel Quartus Prime Pro software.
