You can launch the external process using the following steps:
- If already inside the Vivado project, once the project hierarchy is updated after adding the required sources, you can run the simulation from Vivado. Refer to Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Logic Simulation (UG900) for more information.
- If outside the Vivado project, once the export_sim directory is generated with required simulation scripts, you can traverse inside the appropriate simulator directory and run the <top_module_name>.sh script to launch the RTL simulation.
- Also, simultaneously launch the AI Engine
simulator process as already mentioned. For details on how to run the
aiesimulatorcommand, refer to AI Engine Tools and Flows User Guide (UG1076).
After simulation is launched you can see the traffic propagating to and from the user RTL.
Tip: For more details on how to integrate and launch the external RTL traffic generator with AI simulation process refer to the tutorial.
