NlviewJS Live Demo

This page gives an overview on live demos using the powerful NlviewJS engine, each demonstrating the benefit of Nlview for a specific use case in the EDA design flow. The demos require a customer login - you can get an account as part of an Nlview software evaluation.

These demos run inside an HTML5 capable web browser with JavaScript enabled. The web browser must load approx. 5 MB JavaScript code which can take a moment, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Additionally, for some demos a double-click may request more data from the web server (located at which triggers network communication.

The desktop live demos are best viewed on workstations and notebooks and require a mouse device. The mobile live demo is optimized for mobile devices like smart phones and tablets and includes touch support.

Mobile Live Demos

Mobile Demo This live demo shows some very basic features of NlviewJS and the Nlview core in general optimized for mobile devices. It allows the user to control NlviewJS using both a mouse device and/or touch gestures. Start

Desktop Live Demos

E/E Demo

E/E Architecture

Nlview uses built-in symbols e.g. for ECUs and splices to visualize complex cable harnesses as they occur in the automotive and aerospace domain. On the basis of some simple harness designs the E/E architecture demo gives an impression of how electronic components can be represented and interconnected. An incremental mode allows a stepwise exploration of the currently loaded harness design. Start

Editing Demo

Schematic Editing

This application demonstrates the editing capabilities of the Nlview schematic generation engine. It allows the user to select a symbol from a symbol library, configure its interface, name and other properties, and then drag and drop it into the schematic edititing canvas. Nets are added interactively by connecting two pins (resp. one pin and a net) using the mouse. Start

Hierarchical Demo

Design Exploration

The top Nlview instance shows the hierarchical view of the Aquarius processor from OpenCores. A double-click on an (hierarchical) instance loads its module into the top canvas and its primary input and output ports into the lower Nlview. There, the current module can then be incrementally explored by double-clicking on yet unconnected pins and not fully expanded (dashed) nets. Additionally, this application demonstrates advanced features like highlighting, page splitting, the magnify window, and a schematic history. Start

Incremental Demo

Incremental Navigation

This demo shows Nlview's incremental navigation feature, which allows the user to explore a design step by step through hierarchy borders. This application uses the Aquarius design from OpenCores and starts with an initial schematic containing the IO ports of the top module. Each double click on a pin or net loads connected logic from the server database and integrates the requested data into the current schematic. Start

CSS Demo

CSS Transformation

This demo is based on the demo for incremental navigation described above and shows how CSS transformations can be used to rotate, scale and skew the canvas element. A back calculation of the mouse coordinates from the CSS coordinate space to NlviewJS' coordinate space still allows to use the incremental features even in transformed mode. Start

General Demo

Basic Features

The user can start several sub demos each showing selected basic features of the Nlview schematic generation engine (e.g. folding/unfolding of hierarchy blocks, path highlighting, page splitting). This demo is the NlviewJS port of the outdated Java Webdemo. Start
