Updated SynaptiCAD BugHunter Supports C++ and SystemC

The SynaptiCAD BugHunter graphical test bench generator and HDL debugger now supports SystemC and C++. Standalone SystemC and mixed SystemC/Verilog/VHDL simulations can be compiled and debugged under the BugHunter GUI. A node-locked license for BugHunter sells for $2500 on Windows. Floating licenses sell for $5000 on Windows and $6000 on Unix.

Updated BugHunter Highlights

  • Supports SystemC simulations
  • Standalone SystemC and mixed SystemC/Verilog/VHDL simulations can be compiled and debugged under the BugHunter GUI
  • Simplifies compiling regular C++ applications in conjunction with an HDL simulation
  • Supports syntax color-coded tabbed editor windows for C++ files
  • Loads VCD files generated by SystemC simulations
  • VCD files can be saved in SynaptiCAD’s compressed btim format for faster loading and editing
  • Users can quickly swap between simulators from different EDA vendors
  • Enables detection of race conditions that are often missed when testing is performed with only one simulator
  • Supports Mentor Graphics ModelSim, Cadence NCSim, and Aldec ActiveHDL
  • Cause-effect dependency windows show relationships between signals and process statements in a Verilog simulation
  • Enables users to quickly navigate through designs to find a root cause for a value change on a wire or register
  • Changes in signal values since the last simulation step are color-coded red to indicate the dependent signals that could be responsible for a value change
  • Signal and register values can be changed from the cause-effect windows
