system verilog is now statndardized and has loads of industry support. Since it is a HDVL will SV proceeed to replace standard verilog/VHDL in design? Will SV slowly replace Vera and Specman/E as the language for verification? Please share your views on this..

i want to learn system verilog by my own.
so i want to know free simulators for system verilog and from where i get that software freely??

anyone knows the speed for the same function using systemc and verilog.
what software do you use?
I hope systemc can be 10 faster than verilog, can it ?

I've used Orcad PSIPCE with schematic capture for that recently. I was far from convinced by it as a useful tool (I was only using flip-flops and some logic gates along with a whole bunch of analogue stuff), I'm not sure how it is for handling HDL type stuff.. A few years ago I used AdvanceMS by Mentor Graphics, with I think, the ELDO simulator (it

I am in the learning stage of system verilog, using Modelsim -6.2g version,
But it is not going to Compilation & simulation,
Will this software work for system verilog or not?
are there any other tools which is supporting system (...)

In verilog we can get the random number by system task $random(seed).
If I don't give a seed, does verilog simulator use system time as the seed
or still simulation time as the seed?
If verilog simulator doesn't use system time as the seed, how do I use (...)

I think that problem is not so easy.
For n-level pipeline system in the case of conditional jump you need to flush pipline queue, provide delay with (n-1) additional cycles and load pipeline queue n instructions on the jumped location.
In the case that you want to add BTC (Branch Traget Cache) unit to eliminate additional (n-1) execution cycl

verilog testbench is traditional one. But more directly.
systemverilog and PSL assertion can make Verification easy.
systemC is used to model system level integration in architecture design stage.

Either ModelSim or VCS-MX. Arcording to me, VCS-MX is the best due to the system task interface it provides.

C is a programming language. It is used to program a computer or a system having a microprocessor.
verilog is a modelling language. It is used to model hardware behaviour, so that it may be simulated. It will fall in the category of High level language, but it not a programming language.

AFAIK systemC is intended for high level simulation of complex systems with (...)

This subject has been answered several times ...you might find a more detailed analysis by doing a search here at edaboard
I will sumerize it briefy ..
verilog has a C like syntax ..VHDL has a Ada like syntax .. both are know as hard description languages .. for simulation and syntesis .both are also tricky .VHDL was designed as a multi porpos

Really, i do not have any ideas about that..but i know that as you have written it..the BER is measured in baseband.
Is there any cicruit simulation in ADS software ? how can we make the cicruit to simulate the BER ?
Thank you in advance,

Good idea is always to start with simulations. Once you are sure that there are no compilation errors, and your design is performing as expected, then move on to synthesis.
Industry follows the similar flow : Design --> simulation --> Synthesis --> Backend flow
Modelsim is from Mentor. Latest Modelsim version is Questa Sim which can be used to

Hi, I need help writing a FIR Filter in verilog.
The project is as follows:
Design and build a co-processor that interfaces to the Leon that implements an FIR filter. Use memory mapped registers on the AMBA APB bus device 12 to communicate with the co-processor. Your C program (and Modelsim Testbench) will transmit the 16 bit filter coefficient

SPW is a system level simulator, something like matlab (although it is more powerful than matlab). It also can used for generating synthesizabel code considering its design rules in system level design. Also it can link to some major HDL simulator like verilog-xl, nc-sim or vcs for direct co-simulation. It has also (...)

I don't know if NC verilog has a 2GB limit, but if you are running Windows with FAT32 file system, then all files are limited to 2GB. Converting to NTFS would remove that limit.

In Windows based, you should use different tools to cover the design flow: ModelSim (simulation), Leonardo (synthesis), Ledit (layout generation). But the biggest problem is related to layout generation, because it does not support efficient algorithms to do automatic routing.
In Linux based, you can use Cadence packages (IC5.0.

there's no best way.
to do front end design is to abstract your mind to higher and higher level. just similar to software design, from assembly -> C -> C++.
you must try to move yourself from PNP->Transistor->gate->RTL->behavior->system level.
Good luck! Actually, front-end design is a competition of thinking instead of the experience in back

I am not very qualified to answer this but from my experience only SIMULINK blocks can be converted to HDL such as verilog or Vhdl. Also these simulink blocks should be from vendors like Xilinx (system generator) or Synplify (SynplifyDSP) or Altera (system builder).

systemC is more on higher abstraction level then VHDL and verilog. systemC can be used on specification level, architecture level. where as VHDL and verilog are more on behavioral level and below. The biggest advantage of systemC over VHDL and other HDLs is that it supports co-simulation of (...)
