I am running EMIF IP of Arria 10 FPGA using Questasim simulator. This IP works with 1ps/1ps timescale. But Questasim simulation is running very slow with this timescale. If I change the timescale IP is not working properly.
Any suggestions to improve the simulation time?
If abstract phy is turned on then the simulation will be varied from 10minutes to few hours depend on the interface width and PC performance. May I know how long is your simulation?
This simulation is finishing in 40 minutes with Questasim. The same simulation used to finish in 10 minutes with Synopsys VCS. That is how came to know that it is very slow in Questasim.
It is expected. VCS is known as fastest in simulating EMIF design.
See the comment in document as below:
Simulation times shown in this table are approximate measurements made using Synopsys VCS. Simulation times can vary considerably, depending on the IP configuration, the simulator used, and the computer or server used
