Ultrascale - Aurora 8B10B v10.2 Rev1 - Simplex design failed with IES simulator

Description

An Aurora 8B10B v10.2 Rev1 core targeting UltraScale devices fails in IES simulator with the following error message:

ncvlog: *E,EXPPKW (./../../../my_ip_example.srcs/sources_1/ip/my_ip/my_ip_core.v,68|0): expecting the keyword 'parameter

Solution

In simplex cases the module declaration has an empty parameter declaration (for example module aurora_8b10b_simplex #() (<port declaration>)).

To fix the issue, delete the empty parameter declaration.

The module declaration should be

"module aurora_8b10b_simplex (<port declaration>)"

instead of

"module aurora_8b10b_simplex #() (<port declaration>)"
