|Thank you for reply in advance." |

-- pragma translate_off is to inform Synopsys to not to try to
synthesize the following code before -- pragma translate_on. The
intention is to allow code which can be e.g. simulated but which is
not to be synthesized, but you are experiencing a problem in getting
the simulation to run. Is it extremely important to you to have a
precise model of the BRAM? Would it be acceptable to substitute the
synthesized Virtex2's BRAMs with a functional generic RAM in the simulation?
