6.2 EDK IP Wizard - Simulator compiling problem with IP wizard templates when not using version ID

Description

Keywords: XPS, import, simulation, MTI, NCSim, binding, entity, library

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A simulator (ModelSim/NCSim) compiling error occurs when the top-level model name is the same as the logic library name. For example, if my top module is opb_foo, and I try to put it into logic library opb_foo, the simulator issues the following error:

"Same name for Library and Entity not allowed in Binding Indication"

ModelSim complains that it cannot expand the entity identifier.

Solution

1

To work around this issue for IP wizard, always use the version ID in GUI. As a result, the logic library name will be different than the top module name.

2

This problem is fixed in the latest 6.2 EDK Service Pack, available at:
http://www.xilinx.com/ise/embedded/edk.htm.
The first service pack containing the fix is EDK 6.2 Service Pack 2.
