Spartan-3AN - SPI_ACCESS component simulation support


Keywords: spartan-3AN, spi_access, unisim, simprim, model, modelsim, isim

When is support available for simulation of the Spartan-3AN SPI_ACCESS component?


In Spartan-3AN, the SPI_ACCESS component controls the interface between the FPGA fabric and the In-System Flash memory. The Spartan-3AN devices are Production status and this interface can be safely used in silicon as the data sheet guidelines allow.

The SPI_ACCESS simulation model is not available and is not supported in the ISE 9.2 software tools. Simulation of the SPI_ACCESS component will be supported fully in the ISE 10.1 tools, available in late March. This will include both functional and timing simulation.

Simulation is the only flow that is limited in the ISE 9.2 tools for SPI_ACCESS. The rest of the design environment fully supports SPI_ACCESS.

For more information, please see the Spartan-3AN In System Flash User Guide (UG333):
