Aldec to Offer Complete Coverage Analysis with the Addition of Condition and Path Coverage to Active-HDL’s Powerful Coverage Database

Date: Mar 16, 2016Type: Release

Henderson, NV – March 16th, 2016 – Aldec, Inc., today announces the latest release of its mixed-language, FPGA Design & Simulation Platform, Active-HDL™ 10.3. Active-HDL, which has long supported numerous code coverage types, now delivers a complete coverage analysis package for FPGA and ASIC designers with the addition of Condition and Path Coverage to its powerful ACDB coverage database.


Coverage analysis is a popular debugging mechanism for reducing a verification time. This step traces code execution and delivers information that directly improves the quality of verification by measuring the amount of code that has been exercised while identifying areas that have not tested well. The coverage analysis tools in Active-HDL are completely automated and require no user intervention or changes to the design or testbench.


“Complete coverage analysis is now possible with the addition of Condition and Path Coverage support to Active-HDL,” said Satyam Jani, Active-HDL Product Manager. “Conditional statements such as if-else and case create various paths in the design that divert the stimulus flow in a specific path. Path coverage enhances the analysis of statement/branch coverage by providing information on completeness of program execution paths. Similarly condition coverage enhances expression coverage data by monitoring and factorizing logical expression used in conditional statements.”
