1.1.3. Simulating the Design
These general steps describe how to run the design example simulation. For specific commands for each design example variant, refer to its respective section.
To simulate the design, perform the following steps:
- Change the working directory to <example_design_directory>/ed_sim/testbench/<Simulator>.
- In the command line, run the simulation script. The table below shows the commands to run the supported simulators.
Simulator Command Riviera-PRO* do run_tb_top.tcl ModelSim* do run_tb_top.tcl QuestaSim* VCS* / VCS* MX sh run_tb_top.sh Xcelium* Parallel sh run_tb_top.shThe simulation ends with messages that indicate whether the run was successful or not. Refer to Simulation Message and Description table in Testbench for more information on messages reported by the simulation flow.
