I'm trying to integrate DDR controller into my simulation, for Cyclone10GX. If I generate a DDR3 ctrl sim example, without touching any parameters, then the simulation would only runs to completion if "Abstract PHY for fast simulation" is turn on. Otherwise, phy simulation (with Intel memory model) will never proceed forward. The last console message is the global reset being de-asserted.
I dig into the simulation a bit, and it seems there was no calibration success, as a result of phy_reset_n never set to 1.
It seems the tile never issue the this reset signal.
I also try a simulation with full calibration, and it has the same issue.
Any help would be appreciated.
Please note that I have now successfully integrate DDR3 EMIF with Abstract PHY mode into my application level simulation. I would really appreciate help to enable real DDR models, so I can study controller efficiency.
