The TimingAnalyzerΒΆ

Using the TimingAnalyzer, you can quickly draw timing diagrams and build libraries of timing diagrams. Using the built-in analysis functions, you can quickly find speed related design issues since setup and hold violations are detected, reported, and shown in the diagrams.

You can draw the diagrams using the GUI or Python scripts. Timing diagrams can be created automatically from simulation VCD files so they can be annotated and used in documenation. Application notes included in the documentation desribe how to create Verilog or VHDL monitors that automatically generate timing diagrams.


A new app note, “Intro to Timing Analysis”, is included in the Documenation section. It describes how to analyze setup and hold paths with clock jitter and clock skew and much more. Included scripts can be used as is, or modified to analyze any user defined paths.

  • New timing engine with accuracy to 1x10-15 seconds
  • Added jitter margins
  • Delays can show min or max annotations
  • Web site moved to ReadTheDocs format
