I tried my best to integrate modelsim 5.7c and debussy 5.1, but I failed. Anyone knows if those two can work together? I am thinking about getting the debussy 5.2 and give it another shot.
Here is the problem:
(1) I linked everything according to the manual,
(2) I opened modelsim, and typed "$fsdbdumpvars();". Modelsim sais that it doesn't recognize it.
It would be great if someone can give me a clue. To answer the question of which waveform viewer is the best. I'll give debussy a vote after trying almost al of them. And it's mainly due to debussy's driver source back tracing capability. Modelsim's waveform takes too long to refresh, if the waveform is fairly big.
You can dump the VCD file for Debussy to use:
then use debussy to open it, it will be translate to fsdb format by Debussy automatically.
Or you can use pli provided by Debussy when simuating, and dump fsdb file directly.
