SynaptiCAD is giving away free “no strings attached” 6 month licenses for VeriLogger Extreme. For a limited time, free licenses will be available for both Linux and Windows versions of the 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 over 10x faster than the competition on larger simulation runs.
The free offer is not a just an evaluation license, it’s a free license that can be used for real commercial work. SynaptiCAD plans shortly to release a version of VeriLogger with full PLI support (currently in beta), as well as support for new Verilog-2005 features such as encryption/decryption of IP models. This update will also be available free of charge to all designers who take advantage now of the free 6-month license offer. Longer term, SynaptiCAD is developing a single-kernel, mixed-language version of the simulator that supports VHDL as well as Verilog.
VeriLogger Extreme is a high-performance compiled-code Verilog 2001 simulator that significantly reduces simulation debug time. VeriLogger Extreme is available on Linux, Solaris, and MS Windows. A perpetual license sells for $4000 on Windows. Leasing options are also available, as well as a free, design-size limited version for student and classroom usage.
