The irun utility provides a use-model to run simulations with Incisive Simulator in a simple and consistent manner. The main benefit of irun is that it can simulate the multi-language design & verification environments in a single step by simply specifying all input source files and options on a single command line!!
The following demonstration shows the use-model with real examples:
If the video fails to embed please click here.
irun now supports all simulation languages, such as Verilog, VHDL, SystemVerilog, Verilog AMS, VHDL AMS, and even files written in general programming languages like C/C++.
Incisive users can get the complete information about irun in the product documentation available at: http://sourcelink.cadence.com/docs/files/Release_Info/Docs/irun/irun8.2/irunTOC.html.
Looking for comments:
Do you now prefer running Incisive simulations with irun?
Is it convenient over the existing use-model of other simulators?
If you are not yet on irun, then I hope it was a useful introduction that has encouraged you to use Incisive for simulations using irun!!
Hi Soumya, the easiest way to add coverage is to put "-coverage all" with irun to enable all coverage collection. It will give you functional coverage, code coverage, state machine coverage. You may contact your local support to get more detail information.
Hi.. How can I generate the coverage for nc simulator? What is load_test command? could anyone please help me? Thanks.......
Is it possible to run the simulations with other simulators using irun ??
Hi All, I just wanted to add Amit's post that, in addition to the languages mentioned, irun also supports e files passed in directly on the command line. There are also a number of switches that can be passed to irun to handle specman pre commands and configuration settings. - Corey Goss, Solution Deployment, Cadence Design Systems
