Soft Error Mitigation Controller - No Testbench Available when Generating Example Design in Vivado


Version Found: v3.2
Version Resolved and other Known Issues: See (Xilinx Answer 44541).

In Vivado, when right-clicking on the sem xci file in the Hierarchy view to Generate the selectable output products, the list of targets to generate includes a check box for testbench. Checking this option will not generate a testbench for simulation.


Simulation of designs that instantiate the controller is supported. In other words, including the controller in a larger project does not adversely affect ability to run simulations of functionality unrelated to the controller. However, it is not possible to observe the controller behaviors in simulation. Simulation of a design including the controller will compile, but the controller will not exit the initialization state. Hardware-based evaluation of the controller behaviors is required. For this reason, no simulation test bench is provided with the example design.
