We do use systemC to model and simulate electronic systems. As part of that process, sometimes you want to trace a signal from a communication channel, or several signals against simulation time or events. As such, you generate VCD trace files which can be viewed in a program like gtkwave. Gtkwave does the job but cannot be integrated into eclipse like impulse.
NB: This is not a tutorial of how to trace channels. This is a tutorial of how to add impulse eclipse plugin to investigate VCD trace files in eclipse GUI.
You can even connect this plugin to a real system stream and watch it :). Continue reading “systemc hardware simulation VCD trace output viewing using Impulse eclipse plugin”
