SynaptiCAD's 64-Bit Verilog Simulator is 30% Faster

SynaptiCAD has just released the first 64bit Linux version of VeriLogger Extreme, a Verilog simulation and debug environment. The 64bit simulator runs 30% faster than the 32bit version and can simulate much larger designs (64bit Linux applications can use a system's full memory, unlike 32bit applications which are limited to 3GB of memory). As in the case of the 32bit version, SynaptiCAD is continuing to offer free 6 month licenses for the 64bit simulator, so it is available to use free for commercial development. The 32bit and 64bit simulators are bundled together in a single package and can be downloaded from

Free For a Limited Time

For a limited time, SynaptiCAD will be giving away free "no strings attached" 6 month licenses for VeriLogger Extreme, a high-performance compiled-code Verilog 2001 simulator that significantly reduces simulation debug 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.

Debugger Automatically chooses 64-bit or 32-Bit Simulator

The VeriLogger Extreme simulators come with a graphical debugging environment called BugHunter Pro that will automatically launch VeriLogger Extreme in 32-bit or 64-bit depending on the type of operating system that you are running. 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 unit-level test bench generation is unique in that it lets the user draw stimulus waveforms and then generates the stimulus model and wrapper code and launches the code. It is one of the fastest ways to test a model and make sure that everything is working correctly. The debugger also has exceptional support for VCD waveform files.

Pricing and Free Viewer Version

VeriLogger Extreme is available on Linux, Solaris, and MS Windows. A 64-bit Windows version will be released shortly. 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.
