One of the great things about working here at Cadence is having the opportunity to test and preview new features and functionality before public release. The newly released 9.2 version of Incisive Enterprise Simulator contains a new streamlined signal tracing function in SimVision.
I thought you might like to see a preview demonstrating the new capabilities for tracing signals directly within the source browser, as well as updates to the Trace Signal Sidebar.
The embedded video is best viewed full screen, which you can do by clicking the lower right-hand icon with the arrows.

If tdsp_grant had been four levels deep, the signal tracer would still have gone directly to the arbiter module. You would not have to click through each level of hierarchy.
The current schedule for the 9.2 release is mid-September. The .2 equates to second half of the year. In 2008 we began using the primary release number for the year (which is why we jumped from release 6.2 in 2007 to 8.1 in 2008).
The schedule for completed as well as upcoming releases is available on Sourcelink in the Resource Library under "Product & Release Lifecycle".
At about 1:03 into the demo you are taken to "output tdsp_grant" instead of the actual driver. If this signal were 4 levels deep would you have to click through each level of hierarchy or just the level where the driver was located?
What is the ETA for 9.2? (Why is everything .2? 6.2, 8.2, 9.2...)
