Learning Simulation Debug

80% of functional verification cycle is spent on developing testcases and debugging test failures. Hence every engineer needs to have good debug skills. Below I have listed few concepts that are commonly used.
  • Debug using display messages in Transcript or Log file
  • Debug using ARM tarmac log, and List file
  • Debug by tracing design RTL files
  • Debug using schematic tracer
  • Debug using data flow window
  • Debug using simulation break points
