FPGA Design Simulation
With Quartus Web Edition and ModelSim Altera Edition
Simulations are an important part of circuit design. Circuits built with ‘ordinary’ components can be simulated quite well with conventional simulation packages, but as soon as you add complex digital logic to give your circuit a bit of intelligence, most conventional simulators are no longer up to the task. In such cases, it’s necessary to use an emulator to mimic the behaviour of the logic system.
