PLL simulation in ModelSim Altera. PLL created in Quartus Prime Lite by MegaWizard: Installed IP>Library>Clocks,...>PLL>Altera PLL. Created pll200MHz.
Project for Cyclone V E.

In ModelSim simulation:

# Loading sv_std.std
# Loading work.pll200MHz_tb
# Loading work.pll200MHz
# Loading work.pll200MHz_0002
# ** Error: (vsim-3033) D:/svn/ModelSim/ml/adcLtc2387/pll/pll200MHz/pll200MHz_0002.v(78): Instantiation of 'altera_pll' failed. The design unit was not found.

Where is problem:

I need another Altera librery fo ModelSim? or I have to create another PLL?

But after ModelSim simulation I have to compile project in Quartus Prime Lite...

Hi, 

Have you try to run the simulation using the Quartus Nativelink feature?

Hello,

Thank you for info.

I managed to simulate my pll project by your recommendation (Quartus II > NativeLink).

But before I found reason Why I can't simulate in ModelSim-Altera with my created pll  by Quartus WIzard.

When I added in Simulation Libraries "altera_Insim" I managed to simulate.
