Is it possible to simulate the TMAC block and the GTX serial transceivers using ISE 14.7 and ISIM?

Hi,

 

Is it possible to simulate the TMAC block and the GTX serial transceivers using ISE 14.7 and ISIM?

 

Actually, I tried the example design for the Embedded Tri-Mode Ethernet Wrapper. Simulating the test bench using Modelsim works correctly. However, if I use ISIM the components don’t work. In the UG800 (https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/ip_documentation/v6_emac/v2_3/ug800_v6_emac.pdf) there are only third party tools mentioned for functional simulation (ISIM is never mentioned). Are there no simulation models (or wrong models) for TMAC and GTX in ISIM?

 

Being more precisely about the behaviour, the “resetdone” pin is not asserted by the GTX transceiver after reset in the ISIM simulation.

 

Attached, you can find: the example project including test bench as well as images of both the ISIM and the Modelsim waveforms.

 

Many thanks!

 

Best regards

Henning
