ChipScope Pro Analyzer exports VCD (Value Change Dump) files that can be viewed in order to print and debug waveforms for future analysis. How do I view these files in ModelSim?
ChipScope Pro Analyzer does not have the capability to read in VCD files. There are some free viewers you can use. Here are some examples:
VCD Viewer nWave: One of the best VCD viewers, with support for large VCD dumps. Undertow: Undertow waveform viewer. GTKWave: Freeware VCD viewer. Dinotrace: Freeware VCD viewer from veritools. WaveViewer: SynaptiCAD's freeware VCD viewer also supports analog signal display and SPICE import. A proprietary compressed waveform format allows it to compress VCD files by 200x, making it a very fast viewer.
Also, ModelSim contains an application called "vcd2wlf," which converts a VCD file into the .wlf format.
The following command will allow you to use this application: vcd2wlf <vcd_filename> <wlf filename>
The .wlf file may be viewed in ModelSim as a data set. The data sets can then be compared and printed in the Wave window.
