Use the SIMPRIM library for simulating timing simulation netlists produced after synthesis or implementation.

Important: Timing simulation is supported only in Verilog; there is no VHDL version of the SIMPRIM library.
Tip: If you are a VHDL user, you can run post synthesis and post implementation functional simulation (in which case no standard delay format (SDF) annotation is required and the simulation netlist uses the UNISIM library). You can create the netlist using the write_vhdl Tcl command. For usage information, refer to the Vivado Design Suite Tcl Command Reference Guide (UG835).

Following is an example for specifying the library for Vivado simulator:



  • -L is the library specification option.
  • SIMPRIMS_VER is the logical library name to which the Verilog SIMPRIM has been mapped.
