F1.5i Simulator: Driving a bus in CC Mode get overwritten

Description

Keywords: Simulation, Simulator, CC, bidirectional, bus

Urgency: Standard

Description: When simulating a bidirectional signal it is important to use the CC mode to allow the input to be overwritten by the output. When a bus has pulldowns on it in CC mode these pulldown will overwrite the input and prevent any forced signals.

Solution

This error only occurs in simulation and will not pass over to the actual device. To properly simulate the bus it would be necessary to temporarily remove the pulldowns.

This works correctly in 4.2i release which means it was probably fixed somewhere in the 2.1 time frame.
