1.0 Basics: Installation and Setup   
This video will show you how to install and setup the main ALINT-PRO application as well as additional rule plug-ins. Installation of extra rulesets can be confirmed within the main tool and enabled via the policy editor. For license verification during setup, the license diagnostic tool provides ample information on the current license file and licensed modules.

1.1 Basics: Running Design Entry and Linting   
ALINT-PRO's Flow Manager window allows managing the design analysis process in a convenient way. This video will show each step of the design flow, going through parse, elaboration, synthesis, constraints, and finally linting. At each step, more information about a project can be obtained. Additionally, each step includes various settings and configurable properties that allow for a highly customized linting process.

1.2 Basics: Importing and Running Other Designs   
Whether one chooses to develop their design in Active-HDL, Riviera-PRO, Quartus, or Vivado, ALINT-PRO can always be used to perform design rule checking via the tool's convert feature. Converting external project files into ALINT-PRO turns the source project files into the equivalent ALINT-PRO workspace and project structure. Once converted, the design is then accessible to all of the solution's linting and rule checking features.

1.3 Basics: Violation Viewer and Reports   
ALINT-PRO's violation viewer provides a user friendly window for displaying and managing design rule violations. Coupled with automatic report generators, the tool helps not only to identify any violations within your design, but also document them so that they may be corrected and even prevented in later designs. Automatic report generators come in a number of formats, including CSV, PDF, HTML, as well as Quality Reports which provide metrics on how compliant a design is to a given rule set.

1.4 Basics: Workspaces, Projects, and Libraries   
Workflow in ALINT-PRO is organized through projects that are grouped into workspaces. A project will contain the set of properties and files, those being your HDL source code and design constraints, to form a single entity that makes up part of your design. Libraries are automatically generated at the local level and correspond to projects within the workspace. Additional libraries can be added through the tool's library export and attach features.

1.5 Basics: Policy Editor   
The quality of linting results is largely dependent on one's policies and rules. Through the use of its policy editor, ALINT-PRO provides an effective means of managing and customizing those policies and rules to best fit the standards and practice of one's design team or company.

1.6 Basics: Waivers   
Waivers provide an excellent service in managing violations during the linting process by ignoring those violations or sources of violations that might be too pessimistic for or not applicable to one's design. ALINT-PRO's interface provides an easy process for adding and removing these waivers no matter the source. Additionally, the tool's waiver editor provides a single location where one can manage and edit an entire project's waiver list, and even export this list for future projects.

1.7 Basics: Schematic Cross-Probing for Netlist Issues   
Through the RTL Schematic Window, ALINT-PRO provides a powerful graphical representation of a design's netlist. This window can be accessed, or cross-probed, from various other windows within the tool, which focuses on and highlights those different sources.

3.1 External Tools: Launching from Active-HDL   
Linting can be ran directly from your design tool using the "Run In Aldec ALINT-PRO" feature available in Active-HDL. This feature can either generate a new tcl script that automatically converts the design workspace and performs linting or can use an existing script to perform after launching the ALINT-PRO software.

3.2 External Tools: Launching from Riviera-PRO   
Linting can be ran directly from your simulation tool using the "Check in Aldec ALINT-PRO" feature available in Riviera-PRO. This feature can either generate a new tcl script that automatically converts the design workspace and performs linting or can use an existing script to perform after launching the ALINT-PRO software.

4.1 Constraints: Block-Level Design Constraints   
In projects with encrypted IP, unimplemented components, or simply missing libraries, it is necessary to add block-level design constraints to ensure proper linting of your design. Constraints can be applied to those black box components where internal logic is unreachable and provides the tool with the much-needed information on how that module operates. This behavior is passed by setting cell and pin types, or simply using one of the built-in lib function for common components.

Boost VHDL Development Time with Background Design Rule Checking   
David Clift is an Application Specialist at FirstEDA Limited. David’s electronics engineering career started at GEC Marconi when he joined the company as an R&D engineer in 1984, working on a range of projects including Silicon-on-Sapphire and radiation tolerant ICs. David moved into the EDA industry in 1994. David is Applications Specialist for both Aldec and Sigasi. Hendrik Eeckhaut is founder and CTO at Sigasi. He has a PhD in Computer Science Engineering and did research on artificial intelligence and on FPGA design methodology for scalable video codes. In 2008 he co-founded Sigasi because he believes hardware designers deserve better tools. His mission is to help designers focus on the actual design, and automate away all distractions.  Play webinar

Design Rule Checking (DRC) for Common SystemVerilog Design Mistakes   
Due to the size and complexity of current hardware design, design verification tasks can become increasingly complex and lengthy. Recent advancements in hardware design have focused on cleaning up design code as much as possible prior to entering the design verification stage. Unfortunately, such design code cleanup performed during relatively short time may significantly reduce overall design verification time and effort. As SystemVerilog design constructs gain popularity among hardware designers, it is increasingly important to assist designers with Systemverilog design code verification and cleanup. ALINT-PRO™ is a design verification solution for SystemVerilog, Verilog and VHDL RTL code. It is able to statically verify and cleanup the code far beyond compiler-level checks. It is capable of statically verifying most of the popular SystemVerilog design constructs, uncovering some of critical design issues early in the design cycle.  Play webinar
