General Description:

How do I simulate Xilinx designs
in Synopsys VSS?



VSS requires a WORK directory to put
the compiled data in. First, create
the WORK directory in the project
directory as follows:

mkdir WORK

Make sure the following line is
added to the .synopsys_vss.setup

WORK: /path_to_directory/WORK

Run the following command to
compile the files:
vhdlan -i file1.vhd file2.vhd
vhdlan -i testbench.vhd

The following command will
load the simulation:
vhdlsim -e commandfile.txt cfg_tstbench

where commandfile.txt contains the commands
to start up the waveform viewer, add signals
and stimulus. For more information on the
commandfile.txt, consult Synopsys VSS

VSS, see solution 9755 at
