12.2 Chipscope Pro Analyzer - How can I use the three data formats exported from Chipscope Pro Analyzer?

Description

I can export the waveform data from ChipScope Pro Analyzer to the following three formats.

How can I use them?
 
  • VCD
  • ASCII
  • FBDF

Solution

  • VCD is value change dump format.
    It can be used in the simulation tools directly or indirectly.
    For example, VCD format can be changed into WLF format with ModelSim and then you can use the WLF format in ModelSim.
    You can also open VCD files with some free VCD Viewer tools.
    For detailed information, see (Xilinx Answer 16635).
    VCD can also be used with an Agilent Logic Analyzer.
     
  • ASCII is tab-delimited format.
    You can open it with any text editor tool to view the output values at specific time intervals.
     
  • FBDF is Agilent Technologies' Fast Binary Data Format.
    It is used with Agilent Logic Analyzer.
