Following are the steps to generate simulation CED:
  1. Launch Vivado.
  2. Refer CED Generation Steps section to update the design.
  3. Click Open Example Project > Next, select the appropriate design, click Next.

  4. Create project, click Next.

  5. Select board (vck190 for CPM4 Design and vpk120 for CPM5 Design).

  6. Click Finish.

  7. Simulation steps:
    1. Use the latest Vivado version
    2. Choose a compatible Questa version
    3. To launch simulation, under Project Manager, click Settings > Simulation
      1. Update Target Simulator as Questa
      2. Update Compiled Library Location
      3. Select Generate Simulation scripts only check box
    4. Click Run Simulation under flow navigator. This step generates the required script under <project_name>/<project_name>.sim/sim_1/behav/questa directory.
  8. Go to the same directory % cd <project_name>/<project_name>.sim/sim_1/behav/questa, execute the following scripts:
    1. %./
    2. %./
    3. %./
    Note: For CPM simulation, you must use Synopsys VCS or Siemens Questa simulation tools.
