Main Window

The Main window is the control center of the BDW.  From this window, you manage projects, set project options, and monitor status.  The window displays all commands executed in addition to all messages generated by the BSV compiler and the BDW.

  • Menu Bar, from which you can launch all actions
  • Toolbar, a set of icons or shortcuts for frequently used actions.  All toolbar icons also appear as menu bar items.
  • Status/log window, displays commands, status, messages, warnings, and errors
  • Command window from which you can enter Tcl commands.  All actions available in the BDW have analogous Tcl commands.  Using Tcl you can create scripts to analyze designs and view waveforms.
