Hi,Could anyone help to debug this issue is it a tool issue or code issue.....I'm getting the following error for simulation....the code compiles fine..i have written a separate interface file along with clocking block in it....code for interface file is not shown here.....

Hello,I noticed that you are running with the IUS5.82-p002 release so first I suggest you try to get the latest release. I added an empty DUT and a simple interface definition to you test and it ran without an internal error.. Just two assertion errors.So... the problem could be in the interface definition or the DUT. I've attached my simple files. Try running with this on your testcase so we can determine if the problem is with the IUS5.82 release or the other code.interface gfsktx_top_if(input bit clk); logic ResetN, S2PIn, ValidIn, TxEnable, Gfsk2DacI, Gfsk2DacQ, ValidOut;endinterface : gfsktx_top_ifmodule GfskTxTop (input bit Clk, ResetN, S2PIn, ValidIn, TxEnable, Gfsk2DacI, Gfsk2DacQ, output bit ValidOut);endmodule
Hello kameade,Thanks for your help. Its the tool problem. This code runs fine in the next version of the tool(IUS5.83-s001).Cheers
Excellent!Have a great weekend.Kathleen
Can I suggest that, once you have the error figured out, you submit a SourceLink request for this? They are very good about changing "INTERNAL ERROR" messages into helpful messages if you can show them the problem. This means that the next poor bloke who runs into this will get a meaningful error message.Dave F.
