Questa® Codelink™ delivers source-level debug for code executing on RTL processor models. Connecting to existing RTL models in read-only mode, Codelink has no impact on simulation results. Patent-pending technology transforms general purpose register info into a rich source-code debug environment. Isolate the cause of processor-driven test failures in a fraction of the time it takes using text files and waveforms. Codelink logs register state info during a run so you can debug post-simulation. There’s no need to rerun time-consuming batch runs in order to isolate the cause of failure.
Codelink monitors the register changes of RTL processor models and creates a rich software debug environment. Set break points; step through code; view variables, registers, memory, and the call stack. Codelink is fully synchronized with logic simulation and tracks the position in the source window as you drag the waveform cursor around. It even has the ability to un-execute code so you can step backward through C or assembly, a critical feature for pinpointing the cause of a failure. And, for multi-core designs, Codelink simultaneously monitors multiple processors.
