New in Scansion Beta 9


  • Analog! Traces read in from VCD files with real (floating point) values can be viewed as analog waveforms.
  • Row height can now be increased on a per trace basis. Very handy for displaying analog waveforms.
  • Auto-expanding the module hierarchy after loading is now optional, and can be changed in Preferences.

Bug Fixes in Beta 9

  • Deleting cursors could cause the application to hang.
  • After setting a custom color for a waveform, disabling the custom color would not revert the wave to the default value.
  • Reloading a VCD file with a bus that had been declared as a vector that was bit-blasted in the reloaded file may display no events on the new trace.
