When I select 5G mode, and simulate the example design on a Windows machine, it fails to complete the simulation.
What can cause this problem?
This is a known issue in Soft-Decision FEC (SDFEC) v1.1, which will be fixed in Vivado 2019.1.
It occurs when a 5G simulation only example design is generated on a Windows OS.
Users can use a Linux machine to work around this problem.
For Vivado 2018.3 on a Windows OS, user can download the SDFEC patch from (Xilinx Answer 71873) to work around this issue.
