MIG Design Assistant - Spartan-6 Example Design Simulation


This section of the MIG Design Assistant focuses on simulation for the Spartan-6 Example Design simulation.

Note:This Answer Record is a part of the Xilinx MIG Solution Center(Xilinx Answer 34243).The Xilinx MIG Solution Center is available to address all questions related to MIG. Whether you are starting a new design with MIG or troubleshooting a problem, use the MIG Solution Center to guide you to the right information.


The Example Design generated by the MIG tool includes a simulation testbench, appropriately set up with the memory model and parameter file based on memory selection in the MIG tool, and a ModelSim .do script file.

After an example design is generated, please go to the example design/sim folder and run the sim.do script in ModelSim. You can review the simulation results in the ModelSim Waveform viewer or by looking at the transcript. A successful Example Design simulation verifies a proper simulation environment indicating that the simulation tool and Xilinx libraries are set up correctly.

A working Example Design simulation completes memory initialization and runs traffic in response to the Traffic Generator stimulus. Successful completion of memory initialization and calibration results in the assertion of the calib_done signal. When this signal is asserted, the Traffic Generator takes control and begins executing writes and reads according to its parameterization.
