    In Modelsim, is there any way to view signals internal to a component
    I'm using Modelsim SE-64 PLUS 6.2f
    Please tell me the command if there's one.

    Also, i'd be grateful if somebody would tell me the command to view
    the state machine diagram

    Thanks and regards,

  2. I can view state variable waveforms in simulation
    but there are no circles and arrows diagrams in modelsim.
    I use the quartus state viewer for this.

    He probably means using the code coverage option of his SE version which has
    a graphical FSM viewer. To look at your FSM (no testbench required) just
    compile using "vcom -f cover xxx", then run "vsim -coverage yyy"and finally
    double click on missing coverage state variable and you will get a very nice

    I would suggest you install 6.3c which has superior FSM style recognition
    (added in 6.3),
