The Vivado IDE stores simulation source files in simulation sets that display in folders in the Sources window, and are either remotely referenced or stored in the local project directory.
The simulation set lets you define different sources for different stages of the design. For example, there can be one test bench source to provide stimulus for behavioral simulation of the elaborated design or a module of the design, and a different test bench to provide stimulus for timing simulation of the implemented design.
When adding simulation sources to the project, you can specify which simulation source set to use.
To edit a simulation set:
- In the Sources window popup menu, right click Simulation Sources and click Edit
Simulation Sets, as shown in the following figure.
The Add or Create Simulation Sources wizard opens.
- From the Add or Create Simulation Sources wizard, select
This adds the sources associated with the project to the newly-created simulation set.
- Add additional files as needed.
The selected simulation set is used for the active design run.
