AR# 7465: 2.1i COREGEN: Recommended location of destination directory for compiled Verilog behavioral models
2.1i COREGEN: Recommended location of destination directory for compiled Verilog behavioral models
General Description: There is an apparent inconsistency in the recommended location of the destination directory for the extracted Coregen Verilog behavioral models when running get_models in the 2.1i CORE Generator User Guide.
On page 4-9, it recommends the destination directory for "get_models" to be $XILINX/data, and later, on page 4-17 it recommends $XILINX/verilog/data.
The location of the extracted models is actually not critical because when you generate the Coregen module, you must still edit the path to the behavioral model reference in the .VEO file before you can simulate. However, for consistency with the way the other Xilinx behavioral models are delivered (SIMPRIM, UNISIM, and LogiBLOX), the recommended location is $XILINX/verilog/src.
