Document Table of Contents Generate Test Vectors

Because you can modify a large set of data easily, a useful application for the In‑System Memory Content Editor is to generate test vectors for your design. For example, you can instantiate a free memory block, connect the output ports to the logic under test (using the same clock as your logic under test on the system side), and create the glue logic for the address generation and control of the memory. At runtime, you can modify the contents of the memory using either a script or the In‑System Memory Content Editor GUI and perform a burst transaction of the data contents in the modified RAM block synchronous to the logic being tested.
