Viewing Information

From the Commands menu various kinds of information can be accessed. The time required to execute the last command can be obtained from the Time command in the drop down menu. Information about the file loaded is available from the Info command. Such things as aliases, labels, and tiles can be printed out in the execution window.

To view information about the faults extracted select the View menu item. Various items are available for viewing such as layers, labels, and faults. You can also switch between different loaded files by selecting Circuits... from the top of the View menu item.

Select the Faults command from the drop down menu. A View Fault window should now appear. This window displays all the faults extracted and allows the user to display them graphically on the screen. Selecting a listed fault by clicking on it will display the fault critical area on the graphical display of the circuit for the current defect radius. The Display Layers pop-up menu lists all the layers in the current fault, and can be used to display the critical area in only a single layer. The Display Radius pop-up menu allows selection of the defect radius to display depending upon what defect sizes where extracted. The Zoom button enables you to zoom in on a selected fault for closer inspection. Note that the Zoom button changes to an UnZoom after zooming to allow easy back stepping.

When done viewing the various faults extracted, select Done from the View Fault window. Select Exit from the File drop down menu to exit this session of Carafe. Carafe will ask if you really want to exit. Press Yes to complete the exit process.

Take a directory listing and note the creation of the various files listed in the Extract Window when extracting in Carafe. The 1bit.pro file contains similar information that was obtained by selecting the View | Faults menu selection. Please refer to the respective Appendix for a complete description of all the output files produced.

This concludes this brief tour of Carafe. This was intended to just touch on the use of the X Window version of Carafe. For a more detailed description of the Carafe commands and options please refer to the Carafe Command Line Interface and Carafe X Window Interface chapters. Enjoy your Carafe experience!
