Simulation With Riviera-PRO May Fail to Initialize Under Certain Conditions


This problem affects all external memory interface products.

If your design uses a VHDL simulation model with an Altera External Memory bus functional model (.BFM), simulation with a version of Riviera-PRO earlier than 2014.02 may fail with the following error:

VSIM: Error: Simulation initialization failed


The workaround for this issue is to use Riviera-PRO version 2014.02 or later.
