Xilinx FPGA Transceivers - Mixed models simulation with HSPICE


Why does the HSPICE simulation of a Spartan-6 GTP Transmitter driving a Virtex-5 GTP Receiver stop with an error?


HSPICE 2010.12 and previous releases cannot handle two libraries containing the same subcircuit name.It is recommended not to simulate a netlist with models from different transceiver families (i.e. Spartan-6 GTP Transmitter and Virtex-5 GTP Receiver) because the model libraries could use the same circuit name. Even in the case of successful simulation, the result could be wrong.
