Verilog Hardware Description Language sumulator
Pragmatic C Software has launched a new Mac OS X version of its Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL) simulator, CVC. The software works as a full IEEE 1354-2005 32-bit and 64-bit native-code compiled Verilog simulator that can also run in interpreted mode, and enables engineers to develop Verilog designs. In addition to the new compatibility, various improvements have also been made to the program, such as speed enhancements for the native code compiler.
Additionally, the simulator also offers multiple debugging methods for designers to choose from. It includes the programmable GDB style, with commands such as online help, statement breakpoints, edge break points, and moving and viewing. CVC also provides the waveform debugging style, and supports extended VCD and Novas’ FSDB format.
An evaluation copy of CVC can be requested from the company, while prices and Mac system requirements has yet to be released.
