Hi ,

The TimingAnalyzer can be used to draw timing diagrams of
digital interfaces and check for timing problems in
digital systems. Signals, clocks, buses, delays,
constraints, and states are easily added from the gui.
The diagrams can be saved as JPG or GIF images.

Scripts can written in a Java like scripting language to
generate test vectors, input stimulus for simulators,
test benches, the timing diagram itself, or new features.

Minimum, typical, and worst case analysis can be performed to check
for timing problems in the design. Delays and constraints can be user
defined or specified from part libraries in text files. All files are
text formatted so the user can easily add, modify, or create new

Changing clock frequencies, signal parameters, or library parts
allows the user to quickly check functionality with slower parts or higher

Written in Java, it runs on any platform that supports the
java runtime enviroment JRE1.3.
It is being tested on Windows, Linux, and Solaris.

FREE to everyone while in Beta Testing

Version 0.52

New Features

1 Added a new frame button on toolbar. .
This allows 2 windows/timing diagrams and clipboard
cut/copy/paste signals between the timing diagram windows.

2 Added Recent Files History in File Menu.
A dialog appears showing the last 20 files edited.
Double click on the file names to quickly bring up the timing diagram.
The file list is stored in .taRecentFiles in the user home dir.

3 Add Edge Mode -- quickly add new edges with just one click with next
state automatically inverted. You can disable the "Invert Next State"
from the edit menu or pop-up menu.

4 Add StateBar Pulse Mode -- quickly add new pulses in states with just
one click.

5 Add Pulse Mode -- quicky add new pulses between time divisions with one


1 single click on signal name or waveform selects the signal and
double click on the signal name or waveform to bring up the signal

2 multiple selected signals can use the clipboard cut, copy,
and paste, and moved up and down.

3 moving all up and down using F11 and F12 now moves any text
labels, delay labels, constraint labels, and DTT labels if they
are below the selected signal. If no signals are selected, the
complete diagram is moved.

4 the text in multiple selected delays, constraints, DeltaTText objects,
and text objects can be moved together up and down using arrow keys.

5 multiple selected StateBars can moved left or right with the arrow keys.
multiple selected StateBars text labeles can be moved up and down
with arrow keys.

6 multiple selected objects can be deleted.

7 added StateBar Grid buttons in toolbar. Also added StateBar
"Select all Right" to edit menu and pop-up menu
so you can move or delete a group of StateBars.

8 Installation will read .tadefaults in the
user home dir and write a new version with updates for new features
in the new version. User settings are not lost when you upgrade.


1 missing icons in toolbar for Unix / Linux
2 displaying the correct delay or constraint from user defined libs
in dialog
3 X,U,W,- can now be used as start states in DigitalBus.
4 arithmetic functions inputs can be different stateFormats ( hex, bin, dec )
