i Tried below Steps using Attached zip files

 - Intel FPGA Starter Edition 10.5b (modelsim)

 

 

At the step 7, script Line#6 

vlog -novopt -reportprogress 300 -work work ./slave_bfm_sopc.v

# ** Error: (vlog-7) Failed to open design unit file "./slave_bfm_sopc.v" in read mode.

# No such file or directory. (errno = ENOENT)

no such File.png

 

and also cannot download that Intel FPGA That BFM Links.

To run the simulation, follow these steps:

1. Start the ModelSim-Altera software.

2. On the File menu, click Change Directory.

3. Navigate to

<working_directory>\ug_avalon_verification\sopc_builder\tutorial_slave_bfm
and click OK.

4. On the Compile menu, click Compile Options.

5. Click the Select Verilog & SystemVerilog tab.

6. In the Language Syntax box, select Use SystemVerilog and click OK.

7. Click Load on the File menu to open the Modelsim script file, script.do.

The script file creates a new working library, compiles all source files, runs
simulation, and loads signals into the Modelsim wave viewer.

 

 

If you are running ModelSim-SE you must use the

-novopt

option to prevent

ModelSim from optimizing the design, making the signals specified in for the wave
viewer unavailable.

Hi there,

 

The slave_bfm_sopc.v in do file has to changed to slave_bfm_sopc.sopc because there is only slave_bfm_sopc.sopc in ug_avalon_verification file.

 

Thanks,

Ean

Hi,

 

Do you have any update on your problem?

 

Thank you.

i tried another way ..

 

log -novopt -reportprogress 300 -work work ./slave_bfm_sopc.v

-> no exist "slave_bfm_sopc.v" files

 

log -novopt -reportprogress 300 -work work ./slave_bfm_sopc.sopc

-> modelsim cannot understand .sopc files

 

so i tried the pdf (Avalon Verification IP Suite, #187)

 

example Qsys design [avlmm_1x1_verilog.zip]

 - Avalon_mm-BFM [M]  <--->  [S] Avalon_mm-BFM

 - Simulation well working  like that :  Modelsim -> File -> Load -> Macro file... -> run_simulation.tcl

 

my goal is.. Verification what  i designed Avalon mm Slave Logic [.. in progress]

 [-----------------------------QSys--------------------------------]         [-FPGA Logic for Avalon mm Verification-]

 - Avalon_mm-BFM [M]  <--->  [S] Avalon_mm-Salve [Conduit]   <--->  Avalon_mm_Interface Logic

I think the main problem is lacking of slave_bfm_sopc.v file. You may try to create slave_bfm_sopc.v following the command in the user guide.

That's right need to make(Generate)  "slave_bfm_sopc.v" file.

 

as far as i know..  "slave_bfm_sopc.v" file is output of the  Sopcbuilder.   

 

But i cannot find Step to Generate

- Such as Generate SopcBuilder,

- Open SopcBuilder

- how to design SopcBuilder

(open "slave_bfm_sopc.sopc" files, there nothings..)

as u can see slave_bfm_sopc.sopc files..

only  figure out  some clue.. 

- clk_0 = 50Mhz

- device : STRATIXII

- Software : Quartus 9.1 Version

- Project Name(file) : slave_bfm_project.qpf

output files : Verilog 

 

----------  slave_bfm_sopc.sopc ------Start ----

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<system name="slave_bfm_sopc">
<parameter name="bonusData"><![CDATA[bonusData

}
}

</module>
</system>

----------  slave_bfm_sopc.sopc ------End ----

So now you were not able to generate slave_bfm_sopc.sopc?
