2.1i COREGEN: Incorrect latency modelling and race condition in Verilog model for 4K Constant Coefficient Multiplier core


Keywords: verilog, constant, coefficient, multiplier, latency, VCS, 1.5

Urgency: standard

General Description:
The following problems may be seen with the Verilog model for the 4K
Constant Coefficient Multiplier core shipped in the 1.5 and 2.1i releases
of the CORE Generator when simulating in Synopsys VCS or Cadence

1. The number of latency cycles may be incorrect, usually short by 1 cycle.
2. Race condition associated with transitioning of the output on a rising clock edge

The problems are similar to those found in the Virtex Dynamic Constant Coefficient
Multiplier Verilog model as described in (Xilinx Solution #8020).


This problem is fixed in the C_IP4 IP release, which can be downloaded from:
