You can cross probe from the Timing Analyzer table to the Simulink model by clicking any path (row) in the Timing Analyzer table, which highlights the corresponding HDL blocks in the model. This allows you to troubleshoot timing violations by analyzing the path on which they occur.

Figure 1. Timing Analyzer Table

When you cross probe, the following will display in the model:

  • Blocks in a path with a timing violation are highlighted in red in the model, whereas blocks that belong to a path with no timing violation (that is, a path with a positive Slack value) are highlighted in green in the model.
  • If blocks in a highlighted path are inside a subsystem, then the subsystem is highlighted in red, so you can expand the subsystem to inspect the blocks underneath.
Figure 2. Cross Probing
  • When you select a path (row in the table) to cross probe, this normally highlights the destination block at the end of the path. That brings the subsystem containing the destination block to the front in the model. As a result, you might not be able to see the highlighted source block if the source block is in a different subsystem. If you want to see the source block, click the path in the Source column in the table. This will bring the subsystem containing the source block to the front of the model. Selecting the path in any other column will bring the subsystem containing the destination block to the front.
