Pragmatic C Software's CVC Verilog simulator now for Mac

updated 02:25 am EDT, Thu May 20, 2010

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.

    Exciting news

    I'm glad some companies are moving their design tools to the Mac. The Mac hardware is very capable of running engineering tools. I'm a VHDL designer (another language for designing chips), but I hope Pragmatic gets some interest in their Verilog tool. Another tool that recently came to the Mac is Sigasi (an IDE). Hopefully ModelSim, Xilinx ISE and Altera's Quartus will make the jump in the coming years.

    Another change that needs to happen is for the tool vendors to license by the product, not the platform it's being used on. Let the Mac users run the Mac version of the tool with the same license that the Linux or Windows users would access. Convincing managers to buy a Mac-specific license would be a tough sell.
