Product Update Press Release, June 26, 2013
SynaptiCAD's WaveFormer supports Agilent & Tektronix equipment and Hyperlynx
SynaptiCAD has released an updated version of WaveFormer Pro, a tool for analyzing
timing diagrams and translating digital and analog waveforms between simulators and test equipment.
The new version supports importing and exporting digital and analog waveforms to the latest Agilent and
Tektronix logic analyzers and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. WaveFormer also supports importing timing
information from the Mentor Graphic's Hyperlynx board-level timing analysis tool.
For more information on WaveFormer Pro see the WaveFormer Pro Features page.
In addition to supporting new waveform and timing formats, WaveFormer Pro has numerous
performance improvements including faster import and export of extremely large VCD files and faster
reading of analog waveform data to support VHDL, Verilog, and SPICE simulators.
WaveFormer Pro is also a fully functional timing diagram editor, and several
improvements have been added to make it easier to locate timing parameters and timing violations
in complex timing diagrams. One such feature is the ability to add arbitrary tags to timing
parameters to group and filter them in various ways (for example, all setup times associated with
a given chip). New reports and graphs can also be generated to simplify analysis of particular
critical paths in a design.
Pricing and Availability
WaveFormer Pro is available on Linux and Windows. Perpetual licenses
and time-based licenses are available starting at $1,656. All products are available for
trial download at www.syncad.com
