In addition to supporting standard HDLs, ModelSim increases design quality and debug productivity. ModelSim’s award-winning Single Kernel Simulator (SKS) technology enables transparent mixing of VHDL and Verilog in one design. Its architecture allows platform-independent compile with the outstanding performance of native compiled code.

The graphical user interface is powerful, consistent, and intuitive. All windows update automatically following activity in any other window. For example, selecting a design region in the Structure window automatically updates the Source, Signals, Process, and Variables windows. You can edit, recompile, and re-simulate without leaving the ModelSim environment. All user interface operations can be scripted and simulations can run in batch or interactive modes. ModelSim simulates behavioral, RTL, and gate-level code, including VHDL VITAL and Verilog gate libraries, with timing provided by the Standard Delay Format (SDF). 

Advanced Code Coverage

ModelSim’s advanced code coverage capabilities and ease of use lower the barriers for leveraging this valuable verification resource.

The ModelSim advanced code coverage capabilities provide valuable metrics for systematic verification. All coverage information is stored in the Unified Coverage DataBase (UCDB), which is used to collect and manage all coverage information in a highly efficient database. Coverage utilities that analyze code coverage data, such as merging and test ranking, are available. Coverage results can be viewed interactively, post-simulation, or after a merge of multiple simulation runs. Code coverage metrics can be reported by instance or by design unit, providing flexibility in managing coverage data.
