New BugHunter Pro Features

  • Supports 64-bit versions of Mentor Graphics ModelSim and Cadence Incisive simulators
  • Faster waveform capture
  • Simulations run 8x faster while being debugged
  • New methods for fast searching through the design hierarchy tree
  • Support for capturing waveform data from VHDL types such as enums and time values
  • Functions for quickly changing the scoping level when using interactive debug commands
  • Unique method of tracing backward through cause-effect relationships between simulation variables in Verilog designs
  • Enables designers to debug down to the root cause of errors in their design
  • Cause-effect relationships are shown through a graphical tree rooted on the suspect variable
  • Can expand downwards through the tree to see which statements in the code have contributed to the variable’s current value
  • Can be combined with the SynaptiCAD WaveFormer Pro timing diagram editor
  • Unified environment for performing interface-level timing analysis, mixed-signal testbench generation, VHDL/Verilog simulation debugging, and timing diagram documentation
