HDL Import [state machine in VHDL]

Hi everyone, 

 

I designed a state machine in VHDL and I would like to incorporate it to my Simulink + DSP Builder Model. I'm using HDL Import, however upon pressing Compile button I get the error message shown bellow. Same happens when I try to compile the whole Quartus project.  

State machine VHDL is attached to this message. 

 

I would appreciate any hints on how to solve this problem.  

 

Best regards, 

 

Oz

The source compiles OK with Quartus II 14.1 

 

However the following code is a bit odd to read 

process(clk_in, init_in, counter) begin if (rising_edge(clk_in) and init_in = '1') then if (counter = 63) then counter <= 0; -- resets counter when it reaches 320 else counter <= counter + 1; end if; elsif (rising_edge(clk_in) and init_in = '0') then counter <= 0; -- if "init_in" is set to 0, counter resets, as well as "start_tx_out" end if; end process; 

and most would write it like this: 

process(clk_in) begin if rising_edge(clk_in) then if (init_in = '1') then if (counter = 63) then counter <= 0; -- resets counter when it reaches 320 else counter <= counter + 1; end if; else counter <= 0; -- if "init_in" is set to 0, counter resets, as well as "start_tx_out" end if ; end if; end process; 

Both ways seem to generate the same result, though.

Thank you for the comment and suggestions. The code looks much better.  

 

I can actually compile original code in Quartus as well (no errors/warnings). The problem is importing this code into Simulink model with DSP Builder.
