Vivado System Generator for DSP 2015.1 - Why does the Waveform viewer crash when adding large signals on Windows 7?

Description

Why does the Waveform viewer crash when adding large signals on Windows 7?

Solution

This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future Vivado software release.

To work around this issue, you can do one of the following:

  • Use Linux, as this issue only occurs on Windows-7
  • Use a Gateway-Out prior to a "Matlab Scope" to view the signal
  • Use a Gateway-Out prior to a "To Workspace" to dump the values to the Matlab Workspace for analysis
  • Export the test bench and use an external HDL simulator if you need to view Binary or Hex values
