SystemC vcd file cannot open GTKwave


Recommended Posts


I'm learning SystemC language and I made a JK flipflop and 8bit counter using 8-JK flipflop there's no problem building project but if I running GTKwave using vcd trace file it cannot show anything. please help me

          sc_trace(tf, CLK, "clock"); sc_trace(tf, Value, "SystemC value");
          sc_start(20000, SC_NS);
test is making signal always true
jk flip-flop working only falling edge so I'm using clk.neg()
counter have 8 flip-flop. first flip-flop clock accept main clock and second flip flop accept first flip-flop's q1 value the other flip-flop connected same way to second flip-flop
is there any problem??
I can't find any problem but I can't see anything in GTKwave
please tell me why. I need your help
(P.S : Actually I can't speaking English very well. so please understand I'm using wrong grammar or vocabulary. Thanks)
