2.9. Building the system

Click the Build icon on the System Canvas toolbar to build the model as a .so or .dll library. You can also build an executable model as described in Building an ISIM target.


Depending on your preference setting, a system check might be performed and a window might open if warnings or errors occur. Click Proceed to start the build.

The progress of the build is displayed in the Log window as shown in Figure 2.17. Depending on the speed of your computer and the type of build selected, this process might take several minutes.

Using the num-comps-file and num-build-cpus build options can considerably reduce compilation time.

For more detail on the simulation generation options, see SIMGEN command-line options.
