The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:


Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to add a new waveform into the active wave plot of the current chart.

Access

This command can be accessed from the SimData Editor by:

  • Choosing the Wave » Add Wave command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the SimView toolbar.
  • Right-clicking within the active plot and choosing the Add Wave To Plot command from the context menu.

Use

First ensure that the wave plot to which you wish to add the new waveform, is made active in the Waveform Analysis window. This is achieved by clicking anywhere within the area of the wave plot.

Launch the command - the Add Wave to Plot dialog appears, from where you can choose a waveform from the list of all available simulation waveforms that data has been collected for. If required, you can also create a mathematical expression that manipulates one or more base waveforms, to create a new waveform.

After clicking Create, the waveform will be added to the active wave plot.

Tips

  1. If the Number of Plots Visible option is set to All in the Document Options dialog (Tools » Document Options), the active wave plot is distinguished by a black solid line around its waveform name section. If the Number of Plots Visible option is set to 1, 2, 3, or 4, the active wave plot is distinguished by a black arrow at the left hand side of its display area.
  2. If you wish to move a waveform from one wave plot to another, simply click on the waveform name and drag to the name area of the required wave plot. If you wish to view a waveform in its own wave plot, simply click on the waveform name and drag to either an existing blank wave plot, or to a point beyond the last wave plot in the chart, whereby a new wave plot will be created.
  3. The SimData Editor's Waveform Analysis window comprises one or more tabs that correspond to the different simulation analyses performed. Each tab contains a chart that can contain multiple wave plots. A wave plot can have multiple waveforms, and a waveform represents simulation data collected from a specific point, or node, in a design.
