Polaris is a software of high performance multi-mode Verilog simulation. Capabilities:

  • Cycle-based engine:
    • 5X-10X performance over compiled RTL event-driven simulators.
    • 10X-20X performance over gate level event-driven simulators.
    • Multi-threading option with linear performance gain per CPU.
    • Smart 2 and 4 state with full Verilog strength support.
  • Event-driven engines (interpreted, compiled, and gate)
    • World class event-driven compiled code performance.
    • IEEE 1364 compliant HDL, PLI and SDF.
    • Choice of 2 or 4 state with full Verilog strength support.
    • Faster debug time with interpreted.
    • Full featured and high performance PC platform support.
  • Single unified debugging environment with Verilog interpreter.
  • DriveLine synchronizes all engines in one simulation.
