5.1. High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) Interface Intel® FPGA IP Example Design

The following illustration shows a high-level block diagram of the HBM2 example design that provides the simulation environment for the High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) Interface Intel® FPGA IP HBM2 IP when generated for simulation.

The Traffic Generator emulates a real-world application that writes to, and reads back from memory and validates the read data. You can modify the traffic generator logic to fit your traffic pattern or drive the transactions to the HBM2 memory with your own logic.

Simulation incorporates an abstract model of the hardened HBM2 controller and the universal interface block (UIB). The HBM2 controller performs data reordering and enhancement functions, and allows communication between the AXI4 user interface and the UIB PHY. The universal interface block PHY (UIB PHY) is the physical-layer interface that carries low-level signaling.

The HBM2 Model is an abstract generic model representative of the HBM2 DRAM for simulation. This is not a vendor-specific model.
