.svf File Extension

Developer: JTAG
File type: Serial Vector Format File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .svf. Files with the file extension .svf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .svf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .svf file?

PL (Programmable logic device) designs and CAD developmental projects for ICs (integrated Circuits) can be tested using a serial vector format file created for the specific PLD or IC design. These serial vector format files can be entered with instructions and specifications for conducting particular testing procedures corresponding to each PLD and IC design. These tests may include combinational logic testing processes. These serial vector format files may also be used to debug PCB (Printed Circuit Board) designs and other embedded systems. The encoding and data compilation specifications integrated into these serial vector format files comply with the Joint Test Action (JTAG) standard, more commonly called Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture. ASCII text formatting standards are also implemented into these serial vector format files, which are saved in the SVF file format and are appended with the .svf extension. ATEs (Automatic Test Equipments) can also use these serial vector format files once connected to debug ports of programmable logic devices.

how to open a .svf file?

Launch a .svf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .svf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .svf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .svf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .svf file will open the correct application.

Xilinx ISE Design Suite

Xilinx ISE Design Suite

Xilinx ISE Design Suite is one of the applications developed by Xilinx, Inc. known as an electronic design automation tool. Its main purpose it to synthesize and analyze HDL designs so that developers can perform synthesis to their own designs, timing analysis, the simulation of design reaction when exposed to various stimuli, RTL diagram examination, as well as target device configuration. This software runs on various operating systems such as Windows, RHEL, SLED, etc. as well as it features a Web edition that allows programming and synthesis for several Xilinx devices. The Xilinx ISE Design Suite features a team design, Plug-and-Play IP Initiative, 100 times Simulation Acceleration, etc. This software allows developers to quickly and easily make their designs as well as it also comes with a subscription edition. It also supports Virtex FPGA, Spartan FPGA, Coolrunner PLA, Coolrunner-IIA CPLD and Coolrunner-II CPLD as well as it is available in English.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .svf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .svf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
