Pragmatic C Software's CVC Verilog Simulator Now Supports Apple Mac OS X
May 19, 2010 (01:05 PM EDT)

MINNEAPOLIS, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Pragmatic C Software Corporation today announced the immediate availability of CVC, a high performance Verilog 2005 simulator for the Apple Mac OS X platform. Answering customer demand, CVC has been ported to the X86 Mac OS X platform allowing engineers to develop Verilog designs with the convenience and ease of Mac systems. CVC now fills a void in the market making it the only high performance Verilog simulator for Mac OS X.

Additional Speed Improvements

In addition to the new support for Mac OS X, Pragmatic C has made a number of additional improvements to CVC.   Various speed improvements have been made to CVC's native code compiler so that CVC is now as fast as any full accuracy Verilog P1364-2005 simulator. Pragmatic C's superior Verilog compilation technology allows high performance without any need for Verilog source modifications during simulation.  Such modifications may lead to verification problems because the simulated model is no longer an exact representation of the original Verilog model. CVC does not require port collapsing or removal of Verilog constructs during simulation to achieve its industry leading performance. "We feel that this innovation is important because it improves customer confidence in its Verilog models and simplifies the process of tracking down design problems," stated Steven Meyer, President of Pragmatic C Software.

CVC is a full IEEE 1364-2005 32-bit and 64-bit native code high performance compiled Verilog simulator.  It has a very simple one executable compilation process and also supports an interpreted mode with very fast elaboration and easier debugging.
