How to do simulation on DCM/PLL/MMCM with external feedback?


If the DCM/PLL/MMCM is configured as external feedback, how do you simulate it?


To simulate external feedback you can add the external board delay in the testbench.

For VHDL: the keyword "transport" should be used in testbench. FBIN <= transport FBOUT after 1ns;

For Verilog: assign FBIN = #1ns FBOUT;
