Due to a problem in the Quartus ® II Software version 12.1, errors may be seen when simulating the PCI Express Qsys example design using the autogenerated simulation scripts for the Synopsys VCS_MX tools.
One of the following errors may be seen:
Error-[MPD] Module previously declared
The module was previously declared at:
It is redeclared later at:
Error-[URMI] Unresolved modules
"altpcietb_bfm_log_common bfm_log_common( .dummy_out (bfm_log_common_dummy_out));"
Module definition of above instance is not found in the design.
To workaround this problem in the Quartus II Software version 12.1 follow the steps below:
- Open the generated simulation script <path>/testbench/simulaiton/vcsmx/vcsmx_setup.sh in a text editor
USER_DEFINED_ELAB_OPTIONSto add in the required library include path:
USER_DEFINED_ELAB_OPTIONS="-y ../../<design name>_tb/simulation/submodules/"
Open the following file in a text editor: <path>/testbench/<design name>_tb/simulation/submodules/altpcietb_bfm_rp_gen2_x8.v
- Locate the dupicate module definition by searching for module altpcietb_bfm_log_common and comment out the second instance (Lines 888-1247)
- Re-run the simulation script ./vcsmx_setup.sh
This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future version of the Quartus II software
