RTL Debug

Wave with Transaction Coloring and Biometric Search

<p>Class object handles from the driver in a UVM testbench. These are all the transactions that were sent from the sequencer to the driver. The Virtual interface is also shown, along with the transactions from the channel. Additionally the values displayed are colored according to the biometric searches that have been created.</p>

Wave with transaction coloring and Biometric search with values colored according to the biometric searches that have been created.

Root cause analysis

TimeCone

<p>The Visualizer Debug Environment allows you to find unknowns (X values), trace an event back in time to the root cause of that event through multiple clock domains and find origins of unknowns using the Time Cone window.</br></br></p>

The Visualizer Debug Environment allows you to find unknowns such as x values.

Causality tracing

Connectivity Tracer

<p>Automatic fan-in display using signal highlight from a signal back to the next primary input or flip flop.</p>

Physical Connectivity

Logic Cone

<p>The Logic Cone window allows you to explore the “physical” connectivity of your design, to trace signals that propagate through the design, and to identify the cause of unexpected inputs, by showing a graphic view of the RTL objects in your design.</br></br></p>

The Logic Cone window allows you to explore the “physical” connectivity of your design, to trace signals that propagate through the design, and to identify the cause of unexpected inputs, by showing a graphic view of the RTL objects in your design.
