Why does the provided v11.0 Qsys Simulation for AN431 fail to compile correctly?

Environment

  • Quartus® II Subscription Edition
  • Simulation
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    The v11.0 Stratix® IV Qsys simulation provided with AN431 fails to compile if the instructions are followed on page 27 of the application note, as the provided msim_setup.tcl file does not match the required path locations if installed to the default location.

    To workaround the issue, follow the instructions below:

    Open the provided Quartus® II project, default location is:
    C:\altera\11.0\examples\qsys_pcie_ddr3\hip_gen2_x4_ddr3\s4gx_qsys_pcie_ddr3_64bit_533MHz\s4gx_qsys_pcie_ddr3.qpf

    Launch Qsys, then open the provided Qsys project, default location is:
    C:\altera\11.0\examples\qsys_pcie_ddr3\hip_gen2_x4_ddr3\s4gx_qsys_pcie_ddr3_64bit_533MHz\q_sys.qsys

    Switch to the "Generation" Tab, don't change anything, and simply click "Generate".

    This will regenerate the required files, specifically it will create a msim_setup.tcl file specific for your own library locations.

    When Qsys generation is completed, close Qsys and Quartus® II.

    Launch ModelSim®
    Change Directory to the \q_sys\testbench\ folder
    At the ModelSim command prompt, type do msim_setup.tcl
    For ModelSim SE 6.6d, type ld, then run -all
    For ModelSim AE 6.6d, type ld_debug, then run -all
    The simulation should then run correctly.
