Advanced tab contains two options.

  • Enable incremental compilation option: This option enables the incremental compilation and preserves the simulation files during the successive run.
  • Include all design sources for simulation option: By default, this option is enabled. Selecting this option ensures that all the files from design sources along with the files from the current simulation set are used for simulation. Even if you change the design sources, the same changes are updated when you launch the behavioral simulation.
    Important: This is an advanced user feature. Unchecking the box could produce unexpected results. The Include all design sources for simulation check box is selected by default. As long as the check box is selected, the simulation set includes Out-of-Context (OOC) IP, IP Integrator files, and DCP.

Unchecking the box gives you the flexibility to include only the files you want to simulate, but, as stated above, you might experience unexpected results.

Note: The Advanced Simulation Options are the same for all simulators.
