Compiled Design Related Topics Step 3 — Load the Design for Simulation After compiling the design, you need to load the design with the vsim command using the names of any top-level modules (many designs contain only one top-level module). I want to create a startet in /usr/local/bin and call it "modelsim". This tutorial was made by using version 6. Note that any of the commands in a command file can be interactively entered at the VSIM command prompt in the ModelSim window. ModelSim is only a functional verification tool so you will also have to use Quartus II to complete timing analysis on your design before you can be sure it will work the DE2 hardware. Useful Modelsim Commands. File and Directory Pathnames Several ModelSim commands have arguments that point to files or directories. To be honest a simulation tool is really complex to handle, so this tutorial will be most an introduction than exhaustive examples. When the script is finished the wave window will appear as shown in Figure 5. TCL SCRIPT FOR MODELSIM USERS. If we're running a normal X server, the display is known as light. If you don't do this then the UART messages will be lost in the large number of UXWZ warning messages. If a command-line macro contains spaces, it must be enclosed in double quotes as in:.
