Cadence is committed to keeping design teams highly productive. A range of support offerings and processes helps Cadence users focus on reducing time-to-market and achieving silicon success. Overview
- Scalability as design sizes grow
- Fast time to root cause
- Part of an integrated debug solution
Bring-up time and responsiveness to user requests (driver tracing, search, design exploration) are key to evaluating the scalability of debug as your design sizes grow. The Cadence® Indago™ Debug Analyzer’s multi-threaded architecture delivers maximum responsiveness, with its on-demand loading providing fast bring-up on large designs and minimizing waits while debugging. The Indago Debug Analyzer is optimized for scalability, supporting debug of simulation runs as well as emulation, where support for loading large source files and handling huge amounts of probe data is a must.
Time to Root Cause
Getting to root cause requires a combination of automation and powerful visualization. The Indago Debug Analyzer has enhanced driver tracing to enable multi-stage tracing of the origin of a signal value, fast search from a pre-indexed database, and displays not only matches, but links to source location and executions, all of which speeds debug. This same hyperlink technology is used throughout the debugger to provide more efficient single-click navigation from source and from log messages (smartlog). In addition, search supports “search for data value” and “data value highlighting”, providing powerful visualization of data propagation throughout your design.
Integrated Debug Solution
Indago Debug Analyzer is part of our Indago family of debug products that support and offer a uniform look and feel across the Cadence Xcelium™, Palladium®, and Protium™ verification engines. The Indago Debug Family includes:
Cadence’s Indago Debug Analyzer App has improved our debug productivity up to 50 percent because it helps us find the root cause of the bugs faster. We believe the Indago Debug Platform will enable us to continue to deliver for applications including consumer electronics, fitness tracking, wearables, and IoT.
