In this section, you examine features of the Vivado simulator GUI that help you monitor signals and analyze simulation results, including:

  • Running and restarting the simulation to review the design functionality, using signals in the Waveform window and messages from the testbench shown in the Tcl console.
  • Adding signals from the testbench and other design units to the Waveform window so you can monitor their status.
  • Adding groups and dividers to better identify signals in the Waveform window.
  • Changing signal and wave properties to better interpret and review the signals in the Waveform window.
  • Using markers and cursors to highlight key events in the simulation and to perform zoom and time measurement features.
  • Using multiple waveform configurations.
