Problem with FIR compiler - DSP Builder 12.1 - MegaCore Function Generation Error

Hello, 

 

I do not manage to generate in DSP Builder FIR compiler instances with coefficients different than the default ones (lowpass). 

 

I am using Matlab R2011a (Linux), DSP Builder 12.1sp1 and as target Arria II GX. 

 

If I instantiate a new FIR compiler and I do not change its parameters, the IP is correctly generated. If I try to change its coefficients (wth my coefficients or for example by using the high pass default coefficients), then I got the following error: 

 

megacore function generation error 

ip functional simulation model creation failed. the following error was returned: 

error: quartus ii 32-bit analysis and synthesis was unsuccessfull. 51 errors, 1 warning. 

 

I noted that the launch_iptb.sh generated is different in the two cases: 

 

 

fir generated: "/opt/tools/altera12.1sp1/ip/altera/fir_compiler/lib/../../common/ip_toolbench/v1.3.0/bin/ip_toolbench.exe" -simgen_enable.language:vhdl -simgen_enable.enabled:1 -silent -flow_dir:/opt/tools/altera12.1sp1/ip/altera/fir_compiler/lib/../../common/ip_toolbench/v1.3.0/bin -alt_flow_dir:/opt/tools/altera12.1sp1/ip/altera/fir_compiler/lib/../../common/ip_toolbench/v1.3.0/bin -simgen.family:"arria ii gx" -core_dir:/opt/tools/altera12.1sp1/ip/altera/fir_compiler/lib/ip_toolbench -wizard:fir_compiler "/home/test/dspbuilder_sat_dsp_import/fir_after_cic_i.vhd"

Moreover in the launch_iptb.txt files there are errors like: 

 

info (281010): generating sgate simulator netlist using simgen 

simgen_progress start of model generation -- 0% complete 

simgen_progress phase 1 : internal objects created -- 25% complete

... 

 

 

I hope someone has already met and solved this kind of problem. I did not find any advice in internet. 

 

Please consider I cannot pass to a different DSP Builder version. 

 

Any help or advice is more than appreciated... 

 

Thanks

Hi stephen_zcy, 

 

my problem was solved by an Altera FAE with a specific ad hoc patch. Now it works fine, thanks.
