Plot Window

Category : Debug and Analysis

Plot window is a debugging tool that visually represents large arrays of data. It supports four different plot types and enables HDL design and verification engineers to not only visualize large data sets but also visualize and analyze relations between any objects in their design with no additional programming required.

The traditional approach to analyzing objects in an HDL design, based on digital waveforms, dataflows, memory, and hierarchical viewers, may not be optimal for all applications. For example, in a waveform, signal values are represented with respect to time, allowing many parameters to be verified in a digital system. But, when large data sets are used or the correlation between non-linear values needs to be analyzed, engineers often get too many screens of illegible alphanumeric data to look at, and end up spending too much time analyzing or coming up with alternative ways to represent this data. For this reason, traditional tools might not be the most efficient debugging solution for applications such as image processing, digital filtering, industrial control systems, telecommunication systems and certain embedded systems.
