I ran a design example simulation for created HBM IP, in the latest Vivado v2019.1.1 using Vivado Simulator, and failed (xci file is attached). The simulation compelling processing was stopped by the following error messages:
[VRFC 10-2063] Module <axi_protocol_checker_v1_1_top> not found while processing module instance <genblk1.PC> ["c:/FPGA_Designs/.../Vivado/IP/hbm_if_ex/imports/axi_top.sv":394]
Then I was told that the current Vivado Simulator does not support HBM simulation (see PG276, there is not any details about the reasons). It looks very bad for the users who do not have the third party simulator tools.
The above error message shows a missing module definition file, for my understanding, it should not related to what simulator is used?
When will Vivado Simulator support HBM simulation? I think it is a must fix issue. (The created HBM IP passed synthesis and routing tests.)

Behavioral simulations using verilog simulation models are supported at this time, but Netlist (post-synthesis and postimplementation) simulations are not supported at this time.
Full simulation support is on the roadmap but there is currently no timeframe that I am aware of.

Hi @digitate ,
This is what is specified in PG276, so I was taking this as correct.
See notes 3 & 4 below.
