Logic analyzer is used for verification in the IC design process. However, many academic researchers cannot afford the logic analyzer due to its high price. In fact, many of its complex functions are not usually used in fundamental researches. In this paper, the authors propose the design of a simplified verification platform to substitute current logic analyzers. The main features of the proposed platform are simple and cheap. Besides, they use FPGA to implement the logic analyzer to increase the flexibility.
