Altera FFT IP RTL simulation

Hi all! 

 

I'm stuck with Altera FFT IP core simulation in modelsim and I'm seeking your help. So some introduction: 

  • I do believe I have full license for this IP - I'm using Quartus prime standard edition 17.0;  

  • ModelSim(SE-64 10.2c) should be capable of simulation;  

  • Target is Cyclone V SE  

 

 

Steps I've taken before got here: 

  • Generate streaming 1024 point FFT core and simulation VHDL model;  

  • Add .SIP and .QIP files into project  

 

 

Now when running RTL simulation I'm getting this output:

If I remove .SIP file from project files, ModelSim tells me that FFT instance is not bound and all its pins have no driver. 

 

I'm relatively new to FPGA stuff and have no experience with IP cores. Can somebody give me a hint with this stuff?
