Timing simulations in Xilinx M1 or later use the simprim (simulation primitive) library to model routed designs. For Mentor Graphics, these simulation models are located in the $SIMPRIMS library. The $SIMPRIMS variable is typically set to $LCA/simprims.
The EDIF file that PLD_EDIF2TIM is processing should reference this simulation library as "$SIMPRIMS". However, in this situation, the library is referenced as simply "SIMPRIMS" (without the dollar sign). This causes ENRead (the Mentor EDIF reader that PLD_EDIF2TIM runs) to look in the current directory for a SIMPRIMS subdirectory where it expects to find the libraries.
To correct this, the EDIF file must be rewritten to reference the simprim library as $SIMPRIMS. This is done with the vendor setting in NGD2EDIF:
ngd2edif -v mentor banderas.nga
If you are using the Xilinx Design Manager/Flow Engine, go to the Implementation Options Template. Under the Interface panel, change the Simulation Data Options: Vendor setting to "Mentor". Rerun the Timing stage of Flow Engine, re-export (Design Manager: Design -> Export) the time_sim.edn file, and reprocess the EDN file through PLD_EDIF2TIM.
