Hi,

 

Is there any way to initialize the EMIF example memory model for simulation in Modelsim? I want to read specific data from memory. 

 

Thanks,

 

Mahdi

Hi Mahdi,


For that memory model, it's only available for EMIF IP example design.


But there is another memory model that known as External Memory BFM.

You can refer to link below for the detail about the IP.

Let me know if that is what you are looking for.

Thanks.

Adzim

Hi Adzim,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

When you generate an EMIF example for the purpose of simulation, it will generate a memory model to work with. I am referring to this memory model, and I want to know if there is any way to initialize this memory. 

 

Please take a look at this:
