10.1 EDK - "ERROR:MDT - Cannot get list of netlist files for core ......."


I am trying to create a custom peripheral. I instantiated a CORE Generator IP Core (netlist) in my user_logic.vhd file. The following error message appears:

"ERROR:MDT - Cannot get list of netlist files for core ......."

The bbd file is in the data folder, and all netlists of the core are in the netlist folder. What is the problem?


To resolve this issue, make sure of the following:

- The bbd file is in the "data" folder

- Use the correct syntax in the bbd file:


blackbox1.ngc, blackbox2.ngc, blackbox3.edn

NOTE: Make sure the syntax is NOT like the one shown below:

FILES blackbox1.ngc, blackbox2.ngc, blackbox3.edn

- All netlists are included in the netlist folder.

NOTE: Netlists should NOT reside inside of the "hdl" folder.
