64bit simulator handles larger designs

SynaptiCAD is offering the first 64bit Linux version of VeriLogger Extreme, a Verilog simulation and debug environment.

The 64bit simulator runs 30 percent faster than the 32bit version and can simulate much larger designs. As in the case of the 32bit version, SynaptiCAD is continuing to offer free six-month licenses for the 64bit simulator.

Unlike the lower-cost simulators typically provided with FPGA tools, SynaptiCAD's simulator is being distributed without any code that slows down the simulator when run on larger designs, making it run more than 10x faster than the competition on larger simulation runs.

The VeriLogger Extreme simulators come with a graphical debugging environment called BugHunter Pro that will automatically launch VeriLogger Extreme in 32- or 64bit depending on the type of OS being run, SynaptiCAD said. BugHunter supports all major HDL simulators and has the ability to launch the simulator, provide single step debugging, unit-level test bench generation, streaming of waveform data, project management and a hierarchy tree, the company said.

The 32- and 64bit simulators are bundled together in a single package and can be downloaded from SynaptiCAD's website. A perpetual license sells for $4,000 on Windows. Leasing options are also available.
