Claiming a new level of performance and affordability for high-capacity simulation, Fintronic USA has announced that its Super FinSim Verilog simulator now runs on 64-bit Linux workstations. The company claims this capability will support simulations using more than 4GB of main memory.

According to Fintronic and ASL Inc., users can purchase ASL's Monarch 8200 dual-1.8GHz Opteron system, with 8GB memory and Super FinSim, for under $25,000.

Super FinSim claims low memory requirements, high performance save and restart, a proprietary swapping mechanism, a compact results format, and support for separate compilation. The FinSim family was introduced in 1993, and Fintronic claims some 3,500 licenses have been sold to over 400 companies.

Fintronic said Super FinSim is making "continuous progress" towards full Verilog 2001 support, with many features already supported.
