What are the full command that you use the vsim?

 

Usually this happened if you did not specify the libraries.

 

E.g. vsim -L stratixV....

Before giving simulation command on my testbench, I am adding all Verilog ​library i.e altera_ver, altera_mf_ver, altera_insim_ver and max_ver ;

It is showing  error of "fiftyfivenm_ff failed".

I am using GUI for simulation and adding library into  library option of pop up window for simulation.

 

 

 

Thanks

When you mention GUI simulation, are you referring to the Native link simulation?

 

You can look into https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmVVXQchv2c on how to setup one?

Hi,

above youtube link helped me but the problem with DDR simulation still same. I was trying create new project in modelsim and run simulation after adding relevant libraries but I am getting same error both the way i.e. Nativelink or modelsim.

 

vsim -L altera -L lpm -L sgate -L altera_mf -L altera_lnsim -L fiftyfivenm -L fiftyfivenm_ver -L rtl_work -L work -L ddr_module -L DDR_Data -voptargs=\"+acc\" -t 1ps work.t2

# vsim -L altera -L lpm -L sgate -L altera_mf -L altera_lnsim -L fiftyfivenm -L fiftyfivenm_ver -L rtl_work -L work -L ddr_module -L DDR_Data -voptargs=\"+acc\" -t 1ps work.t2

# ** Error: (vsim-19) Failed to access library 'fiftyfivenm' at "fiftyfivenm".

# ** Error: (vsim-19) Failed to access library 'fiftyfivenm_ver' at "fiftyfivenm_ver".

#

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

I tried in VHDL coding and just added one IP i.e DDR and have done simulation and above error it occurred.

 

Thanks

Thanks for providing this information again. The problem that you are facing is fiftyfivenm is Max 10 devices. Quartus 13.1 does not support that device. You will have to install the latest one Q18.1(windows) or Q19.1 (linux).
