Analyzer - Signal Groups

032_analyzer_groups : Analyzer - Signal Groups

Minimum Required Versions: SILOS 4.12.1.C

Example 032_analyzer_groups, the circuit is a newspaper vending machine implemented as a Verilog gate level design. The Gateway schematics for the testbench and circuit as well as the netlist and the library files vend.gv and abc_100.v.

This example demonstrates the SILOS graphical user interface Data Analyzer waveform viewer Signal Groups feature. Signal Groups provides a convenient method for organizing the signals displayed in the Data Analyzer window.

Analyzer - Signal Groups. The context menu for the Name list box provides the following selections for groups.
