3.x FPGA Express - Library logical name XILINXCORELIB is not mapped to a host directory. (VSS-1071) (FPGA-dm-hdlc-unknown)

Description

Keywords: XilinxCoreLib, map, library, VSS, 1071, CORE Generator, Coregen

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
FPGA Express gives the following error message when trying to simulate a core:

Synopsys FPGA Express 3.x: Library logical name XILINXCORELIB is not mapped to
a host directory. (VSS-1071) (FPGA-dm-hdlc-unknown)

Solution

This is caused by the absence of the following lines from the CORE Generator .vho
file before and after the XilinxCoreLib library declaration:

-- synopsys translate_off
-- synopsys translate_on

These statements tell Synopsys to ignore this library. The XilinxCoreLib is used for
simulation only, not for synthesis.
