how to simulate xilinx custom IP

I have a basic custom IP peripheral for a microblaze that I want to simulate and verify.  All I really want to do is write to and read from some registers.  Does Vivado create a test bench for you to use to accomplish this when you create a custom IP block?  I am a little lost at how to get to simulation.  Where do I find the test bench to test the AXI lite communication?  I'm assuming you wouldn't have to buy the entire AXI 4 BFM to test  a axi lite custom IP block.

Re: how to simulate xilinx custom IP

you do need an axi bfm to test it but you don't have to buy anything. Give this one a try: https://github.com/muzafferkal/axi-bfm

Re: how to simulate xilinx custom IP

thanks @stephenm for sharing that document ... I wonder why this is not one of the Tutorials in DocNav ... such a valuable document ! This could be like 4 tutorial documents of 50 pages each, it would help people a lot to better develop and simulate custom IP

** kudo if the answer was helpful. Accept as solution if your question is answered **

Re: how to simulate xilinx custom IP

I'm glad it helped. I think it was created for training I gave a while back. I do help with reviewing our docs so I do get content added this way

I do try also to create wiki pages for useful content. For example:
