Virtex-4/Virtex-5 Embedded Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper - Simulation Failure using Cadence IES 11.1

Description

When using Cadence IES 11.1 to simulate the Virtex-4 FPGA Embedded Tri-mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper or Virtex-5 FPGA Embedded Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper, simulations may timeout with an error message such as: "ERROR - simulation running forever!"

Solution

To work around this simulator issue, use Cadence IES 11.1 version 11.10.008, a previously-supported version of Cadence IES such as 10.2, or a supported simulator from a different vendor.
