AR# 7909: 2.1i COREGEN: Incorrect data written to Virtex Block RAM in VHDL behavioral simulation / model has incorrect timing on address and data lines
2.1i COREGEN: Incorrect data written to Virtex Block RAM in VHDL behavioral simulation / model has incorrect timing on address and data lines
Keywords: block ram, virtex, hold, output, vhdl
General Description: Incorrect data may be written to the CORE Generator 2.1i Single Port and Dual Port Block RAM during VHDL behavioral simulation due to an error in the behavioral model. There is a delta delay implied by the declaration of an internal version of the module output that is not balanced by implied delta delays associated with internal versions of the data and address signals.
One possible symptom is seen when the rising edge of the clock and the address lines change at the same time. Under these conditions, the new data appears to be written into the new address instead of the data that was valid right before the rising edge of the clock.
