3.2. Simulation Design Example

The simulation design example contains the major blocks shown in the following figure.
  • An instance of the synthesis design example. As described in the previous section, the synthesis design example contains a traffic generator, calibration component, and an instance of the memory interface. These blocks default to abstract simulation models where appropriate for rapid simulation.
  • A memory model, which acts as a generic model that adheres to the memory protocol specifications. Frequently, memory vendors provide simulation models for their specific memory components that you can download from their websites.
  • A status checker, which monitors the status signals from the external memory interface IP and the traffic generator, to signal an overall pass or fail condition.
