5.1isp1 COMPXLIB, NC-SIM, NC-VHDL - "BSDFLN: File not found - /Xilinx/smartmodel/sol/wrapper/ncsim/smartmodel_wrapper.vhd"


Keywords: 5.1i, COMPXLIB, NCSIM, NCVHDL, BSDFLN, file, not, found, smartmodel_wrapper.vhd

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use COMPXLIB in the 5.1i software with Service Pack 1 to compile simulation models for NC-SIM or NC-VHDL, the SmartModels are not compiled. An error similar to the following appears in the COMPXLIB log file:

"ncvhdl: *F,BADFLN: File not found - '/build/xfndry/F.24/rtf/smartmodel/sol/wrappers/ncsim/smartmodel_wrappers.vhd'"

This error occurs because COMPXLIB is looking in a "ncsim" directory instead of the "ncvhdl" directory. (No "ncsim" directory exists.)



This problem is fixed in the latest 5.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 5.1i Service Pack 2.


An alternate way to work around this problem is to compile the SmartModels manually. This can be done by copying the command line that was run from the COMPXLIB log file and replacing "ncsim" with "ncvhdl".

For example, the command line would look something like the following:

ncvhdl -MESSAGES -RELAX -CDSLIB cds.lib -HDLVAR hdl.var -WORK UNISIM /Xilinx/smartmodel/sol/wrappers/ncvhdl/smartmodel_wrappers.vhd
