ModelSim (SE/PE) 6.3c - (Vopt -3473) Component instance "gtx_dual_swift_bw_i:gtx_dual_swift" is not bound


I am trying to simulate a design that uses GTX transceivers and ModelSim 6.3c and above.

However, I receive the following warnings in the ModelSim transcript window:

Warning(Vsim-3473) Component instance "gtx_dual_swift_bw_1:gtx_dual_swift" is not bound
Warning:[1] C:\Xilinx101i\ISE\VHDL\src\unisim_secureIP.vhd(39739):(Vopt -3473)Component instance "gtx_dual_swift_bw_i:gtx_dual_swift" is not bound."

I have compiled my libraries with the Simulation Libraries Compilation Wizard (CompXlib).

I chose the default options for the pre-compiled libraries location.

How do I resolve this error?


This might be due to a known issue, which has been fixed in ISE 10.1 sp2.

To resolve this issue, please change the SecureIP library mapping in the "modelsim.ini" file


SECUREIP = C:\Xilinx\ISE10.1\ISE\vhdl\mti_se\secureip


SECUREIP = C:\Xilinx\ISE10.1\ISE\verilog\mti_se\secureip

Note: This issue is specific to using Secure IP libraries in ModelSim 6.3c and above.
