ISE software - How do I compile Xilinx Simulation Libraries?


How do I compile Xilinx Simulation libraries?


CompXlib is the tool that compiles Xilinx simulation libraries.

For more information on this tool please refer to the following website

  • Choose the ISE version used.
  • Open the Command line tools user guide ( ISE 11.1 and above)
  • Open Software manuals and then choose the Development system reference guide.( ISE 10.1 and earlier).

To run CompXlib via the GUI refer to http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx11/pp_p_process_compile_hdl_simulation_libraries.htm

or type CompXlib in the command prompt and GUI will open.

For ISim there is no need for library compilation since the tool is packaged with precompiled libraries.

For MXE please download the library for each update from http://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.htm

For other information on Simulation please refer to the Synthesis and Simulation guide (present in the same location as above)

For more information on SecureIP please refer to (Xilinx Answer 33275)
