System Generator 14.6 - FIR Compiler gives errors in HDLCompiler when used in a subsystem


An attempt to instantiate a FIR Compiler v6.3 block in a configurable subsystem results in the following syntax errors:

External Model firv6_3_CModel:firv6_3_cmodel threw std::exception:
An error occurred during HDL compilation. ERROR:HDLCompiler:1206 - "fir_compiler_v6_3_control.vhd" Line 103: Syntax error near '"'

Error occurred during "Simulation Initialization".

Is this a known issue?

Can I work around this?


This is a known issue with System Generator 14.6.

To work around this issue, change the name on the block; that is, the new name of the block should not contain a new line character.

In the example below, you can see the block name is "Configurable Subsytem" with a new line; simulating that model produces the errors above. The work-around is applied to the second model below where the block name now contains no new line, "ConfigurableSubsystem".
