SmartView Waveform Analyzer

SmartView is Silvaco’s graphical environment for performing real-time and post-simulation waveform viewing and data analysis of analog, RF, digital and mixed-signal circuits. User configurable preference controls, an intuitive GUI and a library of advanced measurement makes SmartView an easy to use and productive simulation analysis environment. It has robust capabilities for digital and analog time- and frequency- domain waveform and data post-processing analysis, all within a single environment. SmartView handles large GB+ size simulation files with ease using an advanced memory management system.

SmartView provides flexible and powerful handling of data, supporting hierarchical or flat vector arrangements, pre-filtering of data to streamline results and the ability to compare simulation data from multiple simulation runs concurrently. For analog/mixed signal simulation, SmartView’s advanced data display and analysis modes include FFT analysis, histograms, constellation diagrams, jitter analysis, Y&Z Smith charts and contains a vector calculator with built-in SPICE macros and functions with capability for user-defined functions to be added. Users can work interactively, sending commands directly from the UI to the javaScript interpreter, or create powerful scripts for batch manipulation of data and analysis.
