Hi all, The SAIF file is another form of Switching Activity for Power analysis. but how to generate it by NC-verilog. Does there any system tasks can I call in my testbench? I do not find any key words in ncvlog.pdf which is include in CDS documentation. Thanks for your help!Eric 2007.7.12
Eric,You should be able to use dumpsaif in the same manner you might use dumpvars. If you need it I may be able to come up with an example for you.best regardsDoug
Hi Doug, Thanks! According to your help and the syntax about dumpvars. I add dumpsaif in my bench, but the tools don't recognize it.: $dumpsaif (1, fetch_tb);: |: ncelab: *E,NOTSYT (../config/fetch_dumpwave.vh,25|15): Unrecognized system task or function (did not match built-in or :: user-defined names) [2.7.4(IEEE Std 1364-2001)]. What's your mind? I appreciate that you give me an example. Regards Eric
Eric,My fault, my response was a bit vague.Actually dumpsaif is a tcl command but I use dumpvars as an output for signal dumping. I don't know how to attach a testcase here, so if you want to send me some email firstname.lastname@example.org I will send you a small example of how it is used. My example is verilog. I have not tried it with vhdl but I assume it must be similar.Best RegardsDoug
Dear Doug, Thanks you for your help! By using the method you give me, I have result my problem. l am looking for tcl commands NC-verilog supported from cadence documents, but there are no any information about this command. Can you release some doc to me.Thanks again.Best RegardsEric
Eric,That's Great. I am glad it helped. I have looked for tcl docs regarding saif but I have been unsuccessfull so far. I am still looking.If I am able to locate some useful doc I will send it to you via email.Best RegardsDoug
You can find the TCL documentation in the [i]NC-Verilog Simulator Help[/i], Chapter 13, [i]Using the Tcl Command-Line Interface[/i].Tim
Thanks Tim,I found them and forwarded them to Eric.Doug
In this forum, everyone is warmhearted and professional. I am very glad to know you and need learn more from you. Thanks both of you, Doug and Tim!Best RegardsEric
