Compiling Intel FPGA simulation model files

Before simulating an Intel FPGA design, you must compile Intel FPGA simulation model files.

To compile Intel FPGA simulation models, use any of the following methods

  • Compile simulation models manually with your simulator, according to the simulator vendor documentation.
  • Compile all required libraries at once with the EDA Simulation Library Compiler. You can perform this task interactively, or using a command line argument.
    Note: Once the simulation model compilation starts, the compilation may require from 15 minutes to a full hour, depending on your system. Although the compilation messages may appear paused or incomplete, the compilation is still running correctly.
Important: The Quartus® Prime software includes precompiled libraries for the Questa® - Intel® FPGA Edition simulator. Do not compile these libraries.
