More commonly associated with SystemVerilog, IDEs can also greatly help users of the popular HDL for FPGA, mil/aero and other designs.
How an integrated design environment can help you overcome complexities within the Universal Verification Methodology and manage the size of the libraries within it.
The vision of portable stimulus is to find a way to write tests that can be portable ‘vertically’ from IP block to subsystem to system, and ‘horizontally’ from simulation to emulation to silicon. However, applying portable stimulus to real chip designs is not trivial.
Power intent files have increased efficiency and the use of an IDE can prevent them becoming outdated as a design evolves.
An IDE is critical to top quality refactoring. Here are some tips and examples of how to achieve that.
Refactoring saves time and resuources by converting code to a common format and eliminates redundancies to make it more readable and maintainable.
An IDE designed to catch typographical errors, missing declarations and inconsistent references in your code can hugely reduce your time in debug.
Integrated design environments and features within them such as auto-complete deliver valuable efficiencies for input, verification and debut.
Text editors have major debug limitations that the use of hyperlinks in integrated development environments help you overcome.
