What is ModelSim software used for?

ModelSim is a multi-language environment by Mentor Graphics, for simulation of hardware description languages such as VHDL, Verilog and SystemC, and includes a built-in C debugger. ModelSim can be used independently, or in conjunction with Intel Quartus Prime, PSIM, Xilinx ISE or Xilinx Vivado.

What is the advantage of ModelSim software?

ModelSim eases the process of finding design defects with an intelligently engineered debug environment that efficiently displays design data for analysis and debug of all hardware description languages.

Why is it important to use ModelSim student edition?

This tutorial explains first why simulation is important, then shows how you can acquire Modelsim Student Edition for free for your personal use. Simulation is a critical step of designing FPGAs and ASICs.

What kind of hardware does ModelSim se use?

1. The VCO name refers to the platform directories that are created during installation. 2. Memory usage is limited to the maximum process size allowed by the Linux kernel. 3. ModelSim runs on all UltraSPARC hardware including the Sun Blade platform. 4. ModelSim works on both 32- and 64-bit installs of Windows 7.

Is there a Verilog source for ModelSim me?

There is no Verilog source for MSS and SerDes simulation models for SmartFusion, SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 families. MSS and SerDes simulation models are included in the pre-compiled ModelSim ME library installed with the Libero SoC software. The libraries below include models for the library cells and blocks in the FPGA fabric.
