Yes, Debussy does offer capabilities like that. It can generate a schematic to help user to visualize the circuit he's building. Debussy allows user to select the level of abstraction he desires. If user choose to view his circuit at a higher level, state machines show up as a square block with a "f" in the middle. User can choose to view the detailed circuit which turns high level blocks in to gates. The gates are like GTECH, not gates from user's technology library.mami_hacky said:OK! Let me describe my design methodology:
First of all, Using HDL Designer, I draw the top block schematic, and then I write the needed verilog codes. ( Or I design the needed State machine, if needed. )
Once the complete set of hdls was generated by HDL Designer, I use NC Sim to simulate the design. There, "schematic drawing" capability of SimVision help me a lot to realize where I have mistakes.
Now, I want exatcly to know, If this capability is better in Novas Debussy than SimVision.
ye,I think so,debussy is a tool to debug easily;But I find it not capacibility to support Spice netlist!luoliuzhu said:I think debussy is a very good debug tools , I use debussy to ECO my design. it can help me find easyly some error ,and rewrite the netlist.
so i very like this!
You can try Sandword to debug spice netlist and waveform.Leo said:ye,I think so,debussy is a tool to debug easily;But I find it not capacibility to support Spice netlist!luoliuzhu said:I think debussy is a very good debug tools , I use debussy to ECO my design. it can help me find easyly some error ,and rewrite the netlist.

If it can do it I think it will be better!
Interesting price comparison - is this 50K for Simvision ALONE or is it for NCSIM + SimVision? I guess it is the latter, if so your comparison is not apples-2-apples. NC is a full fledged simulator + debug tool, Debussy is a *GREAT* debug tool, but not a HDL simulator.kwkam said:At some point of view, debussy is a schematic, waveform and code viewer and editor. It have almost all function in the simvision. But it is a lot cheaper than simvision. Cadence simvision cost US$50K and debussy cost around US$5K
