Hi,

Here is the code of my state machine

type monfsm_reg_type is record
state : STATE_TYPE;
start : std_logic;
address : std_logic_vector(31 downto 0);
wdata : std_logic_vector(31 downto 0);
inst_cnt : std_logic_vector(5 downto 0); -- instance counter (eg no. of leons)
pword_cnt : std_logic_vector(5 downto 0); -- packet word counter (eg in current spec 5 32bit word constitutes a packet)
end record;

Code compiles properly; but during simulation, after one ms when it reaches the line (mentioned as "ERROR LINE" above), Modelsim throws the error

** Fatal: (vsim-3421) value 1 is out of range 0 to 0;

I am using variables for first time in my state machine design.
If I change the v.inst_cnt to c.inst_cnt, it works fine.... but with variable in RHS this error comes,....
when "000001" => v.wdata := lpact(conv_integer(v.inst_cnt)).data1;
So, I am clueless about the cause of this error.
Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance.

Error Fixed

Hi,....

My mistake,.... variable v.inst_cnt is getting incremented before the above mentioned case statement, which is checked for upper limit only it has been used by the case statement.
Thats the cause for the ERROR.
