Press Release for new product release: January 2, 2007
SynaptiCAD Releases VeriLogger Extreme
SynaptiCAD announced today the release of VeriLogger Extreme, a completely new, high-performance compiled-code
Verilog 2001 simulator that significantly reduces simulation debug time. VeriLogger Extreme offers fast
simulation of both RTL and gate-level simulations with SDF timing information and supports design libraries
and design flows for all major ASIC and FPGA vendors, including Actel, Altera, Atmel, LSI Logic, QuickLogic,
BugHunter Pro graphical debugger included with purchase of VeriLogger Extreme!
VeriLogger Extreme comes bundled with SynaptiCAD.s graphical Verilog/VHDL integrated development environment,
BugHunter Pro, which supports debugging with all major HDL simulators. BugHunter supports source-level
debugging, a waveform compression engine for high-speed waveform dumping and viewing, and graphical
test bench generation features for rapidly testing HDL models. BugHunter also supports importing and
exporting simulation test vectors to Agilent and Tektronix pattern generators and logic analyzers.
VeriLogger Extreme makes simulation and hardware testing easy
.Digital designers need simulation tools that are fast, accurate, affordable, and user-friendly.., said
Dan Notestein, President of SynaptiCAD. .VeriLogger Extreme represents 34 man-years of research and
development by SynaptiCAD to develop a product that meets these needs. Going one step further, VeriLogger
Extreme enables designers to re-use the test vectors created in the simulation phase during their hardware
test and debug, a stage of verification typically ignored by other EDA vendors..
Take your work with you: VeriLogger Extreme is optimized for your laptop!
VeriLogger Extreme has been optimized for low memory usage, enabling even very large designs to run
on memory-constrained laptops. VeriLogger Extreme uses 20% less memory than SynaptiCAD.s existing interpreted
Verilog simulator, VeriLogger Pro, which itself uses less memory than any other simulator on the market.
Speed-wise, VeriLogger Extreme is 8x faster than VeriLogger Pro for RTL-level simulation and 30x faster
for gate-level simulation. Existing VeriLogger Pro customers with maintenance contracts can upgrade
to VeriLogger Extreme for free.
Pricing and Availability
VeriLogger Extreme is available on Linux, Solaris, and MS Windows. A perpetual license sells for $4000
on Windows, but SynaptiCAD is offering an introductory discount of 25% for the next 90 days. Leasing
options are also available, as well as a free, design-size limited version for student and classroom
