ModelSim (SE, PE) - Compiling Xilinx SimPrim library produces "Error: C:\Xilinx\vhdl\src\simprims\simprim_VITAL.vhd(xxx): VITAL TISD timing generic must be a scalar form of VITAL delay type. (1076.4 section 4.3.2.1.3.13)

Description

Keywords: MTI, ModelTech, ModelSim, SimPrim, vcom, VITAL, TISD, simprim_VITAL

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When trying to manually compile Xilinx SimPrim libraries, I receive the following error message:
** Error: C:\Xilinx\vhdl\src\simprims\simprim_VITAL.vhd(xxx): VITAL TISD timing generic must be a scalar form of VITAL delay type. (1076.4 section 4.3.2.1.3.13)

Solution

This will happen if you do not use CompXLib for compiling the libraries. Please use CompXLib for compiling the libraries as it will take care of all the specifics for compiling the correct files for the libraries depending on the simulator.

More information on using CompXLib can be found in the Synthesis and Verification Design Guide on:
