Advanced VHDL featuring ModelSim

This fully-loaded, fast paced one day course offers a balance of language and tool specific topics that can greatly improve design verification results and enhance engineering productivity.

We'll cover how to fully leverage VHDL Text I/O for both reading input stimulus from and writing simulation results to external files.  We also cover Mentor Graphics ModelSim specific features such as basic scripting, automated waveform comparison and Code coverage.

For Xilinx ISE users, the class also covers how to leverage the interface between the Xilinx tools and ModelSim for maximum productivity.

This class affords existing VHDL designers the opportunity to quickly apply advanced simulation techniques that immediately save time, promote consistence and yield an overall more robust design verification strategy.
