Tool Evaluation Report
Choosing one of these tools:
KEYSIGHT Technologies / Agilent : ADS -Advanced Design System
SoftMEMS – MEMS
Tanner EDA – Tanner MEMS design flow
Mentor graphics - SystemVision
- Investigate the tool- read documentations, watching videos and excuting tutorials.
- preparing a user manual which includes the steps required to operate the tool.
- preparing a report describing the the purpose and possible uses of the tool including any additional hardware and/or software required to demonstrate its use. Include the advantages of it compared to XILINX tools.
- Prepare a PowerPoint presentation about it.
The details are there.
You need to go to read and study about the Mentor Graphics: SystemVision. and know how that tool works and how to use it.
Then prepare a user manual includes the steps of how to operate it and etc..
Then prepare a PowerPoint presentation about the tool and how it works and its advantage and everything about it.
Then A report about the tool. ( basically it is more things about the tool + the stuff written on the PPT)
That is mostly it.
Do not forget this tool is a design tool, so, need to know what is it for, how it works, compare it to XILINX (Vivado- SDK) tools and what the advantage of it
so deliverables are:
1- PPT The PPT is about 15 slide roughly
2-User manual User manual 8 to 10 pages
3- report the report is 8 to 10 pages
User manual should include instructions on how to operate the tool and use it step by step, use pictures and figures of the stuff the user need to know when he wants to use this tool. Also, include a one page quick start guideline.
That mostly it.
Also, Do not FORGET TO INCLUDE ALL THE REFERENCES used.
Or it will be considered Plagiarism.
