    NC-Verilog & ncxlmode Reply

    Hello all,

    Sorry I posted topic to System Design and Verification also.

    I am trying to learn how to simulate Verilog design. I import verilog code to design with Verilog-In, generated the schematic, functional and netlist. Now I want to use NC-Verilog to Compile, Elaborate and Simulate design. From the Schematic Editor > Launch > Simulation > NC-Verilog I run Verilog Environment.

    Problem is with Simulation Setup form and NC-Verilog Executable field, which is not blank, but Verilog Integration says It is. The field is "ncxlmode". I didn't find ncxlmode in my cadence instalation. Should it be binary file and be installed with cadence? If, then what package contains this binary?  I can not continue due to this error. Can anyone help me with this issue? The all problem is in Print-screen at:

    I use IC6.1.5.500.6, installed also MMSIM10.11, RC10.1, EDI10.1 on CentOS6.

     Thank you very much in advance,

     Zdenko

    ‘ncxlmode’ has been replace with ‘irun’.

    Thank you, I figured out that 'irun' is not in IC6.1.5 package, but in IUS package (8.1 or higher), but this package is not in IC release 2011-2012(or I could not find). Should I get IUS package from Cadence somewhere? Thanks, Zdenko

    If it's a plain Verilog simulation you could also try "ncverilog" instead of irun. If you do try to install "IUS" use either INCISIV102 or INCISIV111 via InstallScape, since the old "IUS" packages are no longer supported.

    Thank you very much, that's what I really needed. I already have installed INCISIV, thank you and have a nice day.
