14.5 Coregen - AXI BFMs CORE Generator example designs failed with errors in simulation in 14.5

Description

When I run the AXI BFM CORE Generator example design in Modelsim using the simulate_mti.do file in the simulation/functional directory, I encounter the following errors:

** Error: (vsim-3033) ../cdn_axi3_example_master_v_vhd_tb.v(248): Instantiation of 'cdn_axi3_master_bfm' failed. The design unit was not found.

        Region: /cdn_axi3_example_tb/master_0

        Searched libraries:

          /questasim-10.1/xilinx-14.5/linux/lib/secureip

          /interfaces/sgmii_eth/ip_cores/axi_emulator/simulation/functional/work

Refreshing /simulation/functional/work.cdn_axi3_slave_bfm_wrap

Loading work.cdn_axi3_slave_bfm_wrap

** Error: (vsim-3033) ../cdn_axi3_example_slave_v_vhd_tb.v(285): Instantiation of 'cdn_axi3_slave_bfm' failed. The design unit was not found.

        Region: /cdn_axi3_example_tb/slave_0

Solution

Starting in 14.5, you will need to explicitly compile the BFM.  Add the following line to your Modelsim .do file:

vlog -work secureip -f $Xilinx\secureip\mti\axi_bfm_mti\axi_bfm_cell.list.f

There is no current plan to fix this in ISE design suite.
