0 of the PowerPro Platform improves turnaround time by 2X and includes new usability features such as advanced reset-logic insertion, bottom-up flow support, a stronger sequential analysis engine for PowerPro MG (Memory Gating), and the ability to read the Fast Signal Database (FSDB), which eliminates the need for large Value Change Dump
6 includes a new design analysis algorithm that provides a quick and accurate method for performing power analysis without having to utilize the traditional Value Change Dump
CoFluent Studio provides a specific instrumentation interface to generate the activity of platform components into Value Change Dump
format (VCD) that Aceplorer can interpret and run on the power model.
CVC also supports wave form debugging using either the P1364 VCD value change dump
format or the SpringSoft (Debussy) Fsdb format.
Support for the industry-standard Value Change Dump
(VCD) format ensures compatibility with many third-party tools, while planned support for Novas' widely-used Fast Signal Database (FSDB) format will provide optimal integration with the Novas Siloti(TM) and Verdi(TM) products.
With Verilog Change Dump
(VCD) import, WaveFormer Lite enables the import of IEEE 1364 standard waveforms.
It features a simplified user interface and command-line operation, and supports industry-standard EDA input formats, including Standard Test Interface Language (STIL), Waveform Generation Language (WGL), Value Change Dump
(VCD), Extended VCD (EVCD) and Core Test Language (CTL).
Output from Cadence's Verilog Value Change Dump
(VCD) and Extended VCD formats, and test patterns from leading automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) software products, such as Synopsys' TetraMAX(R) and the Mentor Graphics FastScan(TM) and TestKompress(TM) tools, were successfully tested and work with the TestDeveloper product.
These clients will support IP selection, breakpoint definition, probe configuration, test bench or software uploads, and Verilog Change Dump
(VCD) based waveform analyses.
A vendor-independent API allows access of proprietary waveform file formats for higher performance and obsoletes the disk-consuming ASCII Value Change Dump
Hammer 100 now offers an advanced debug facility in concurrent, parallel and progressive waveform conversion to industry standard formats such as fast signal database (FSDB), value change dump
(VCD), or VCD post-processing data (VPD).
