ASE Simulation Syntax Error(?)




I am trying to run ASE simulation for AAL application (which is an on-going project, cannot switch to OPAE right now). When I "make" the simulation side, once it worked and started to wait for the software part. However when I tried to run it again, entered the command "make", it gave strange errors that I cannot understand. I am pretty sure that I used the same environment variables.

There are 193 errors and they are all similar. I tried to access another node, however it still remains in the same node which is "vsl003".


Can you please help me with this problem.

Thank you in advance.

Currently I am reviewing the forum for any open questions and found this thread. I apologize that no one seems to answer this question that you posted. Since it has been a while you posted this question, I'm wondering if you have found the answer? If not, please let me know, I will try to assign/find someone to assist you. Please do expect some delay in response as most of our agents are out of office due to the year-end holidays. Thank you.







This Error seems like Modelsim can't recognize the syntax did you tried to look at the codes pointed in Error message ?

How is the simulation scripts generated, is the correct command used for compilation like "-sv" switch for system verilog code.
