Increasing functionality and performance available within today’s FPGAs has resulted in growing use of programmable logic across all areas of electronic design, leading more design teams to select an FPGA based implementation and presenting a rising design and verification challenge. Since modern FPGAs require a scalable, vendor independent platform to accommodate growing designer needs, going beyond what typical vendor supplied simulators can provide is the only viable option. Those independent tools help designers meet all challenges and deliver reliable designs, faster.
