FSDB Files

FSDB stands for “Fast Signal Data Base”. This file format was developed by NOVAS to replace VCD (value change dump) files. After a number of acquisitions Synopsis Inc owns FSDB. FSDB files are binary and they make use of data compression. As a consequence they are a lot smaller that …

PSFXL Parser

PSFXL files are mainly generated by the Cadence Spectre simulator. The format is an extension of the PSF file format. It allows higher read/write speeds. Therefore Spectre generates PSFXL files for transient simulations. In addition to the data files Spectre writes a “logFile” which lists all files containing simulation data. …
