Virtex-6 FPGA GTH Transceiver Wizard - NCSIM simulation fails with error "ncvlog: *E,NGITEM (../../example_design/v6gth_wrapper_gth_init.v,142|14): Not a valid generate item: 'parameter_declaration' [12.1.3(IEEE 2001)]."

Description

When simulating the outputs from the Virtex-6 FPGA GTH Transceiver Wizard in NCSIM, you might see failures similar to the following:

ncvlog: *E,NGITEM (../../example_design/v6gth_wrapper_gth_init.v,142|14): Not a valid generate item: 'parameter_declaration' [12.1.3(IEEE 2001)].

Solution

To work around these errors, "parameter" declarations need to be changed to "localparam".

For example:

parameter [3:0] TXBUFRESET = 4'b0000;

needs to be changed to: 

localparam [3:0] TXBUFRESET = 4'b0000;
