Instantiation of 'fifo_generator_v13_2_2' failed

Jump to solution

I generated 'my_fifo' in Vivado 2018.2, then I used 'my_fifo.v' from '/sim' directory as a behavioural simulation file in Modelsim (it was compiled). It instantiates 'fifo_generator_v13_2_2' IP core but when loading 'my_fifo.v' in Modelsim it displays this warning:

"Instantiation of 'fifo_generator_v13_2_2' failed. The design unit was not found."

It says that it searched these libs: secureip, unisims_ver, unimacro_ver & work

Modelsim.ini has all required paths after compiling libraries in Vivado, everything is shown under Library tab in Modelsim as a confirmation that it is ok.

So WHY IT DOES NOT FIND 'fifo_generator_v13_2_2'? Is something missing here?

I found the solution: vsim should be called with '-L fifo_generator_v13_2_2' to instantiate 'fifo_generator_v13_2_2' module.
