Linting

Linting is a process of running a program that will analysis the code for potential errors. This tutorial is for checking errors and warnings in a Verilog code using Cadence tool.

  1. Open the terminal
  2. Source the cadence.cshrc
  3. In a new ASIC lab directory, write a Verilog coded design (in this example fifo.v)
  4. Write the linting test syntax as shown below with your design code. Lab]$ irun –superLint fifo.v
  • Check the folder contents after exiting from FormalVerifier. It will have few log files, which we have to check for improving our coding style.
  • Check the file rtlchecks.log and modelchecks.log. We have to figure out the issues in the design code.
  • Verify the reason behind the warnings and errors if any, and analyze the code accordingly.
