Introduction

Python scripts can be used to add new features, draw timing diagrams, generate test vectors, convert simulation waveform diagrams into timing diagrams, and check for timing constraint errors in digital logic systems.

Use any text editor to write the scripts and store them in the scripts directory. Select “Script” from the file menu, a dialog listing all the scripts is displayed. Choose the script and hit the “Execute” button. It’s best to start the TimingAnalyzer from the command line when developing and testing scripts because debugging information is output to the command window or shell.
