The 64?bit Quartus II software software installation cannot generate a functional simulation model for any variation of the FIR Compiler and cannot compile the FIR Compiler, because it does not generate the expected netlist.
When the software attempts to generate a FIR Compiler functional simulation model, the following error message displays:
IP Functional Simulation Model Creation Failed. The
following error was returned: Error: Node instance “fircore” instantiates
undefined entity “<instance_name
When the software attempts to compile a design that includes a FIR Compiler instance, the following error message displays:
Error: Node instance “fircore” instantiates undefined
This issue affects all FIR Compiler variations.
The FIR Compiler netlist is not generated.
To avoid this issue, install and use the 32-bit Quartus II software.
