Which free VHDL simulator can I use?
Sigasi Pro is not a simulator. If you don't have a VHDL simulator yet, we would recommend the following simulators. You can download them free of charge.
|Simulator||Comment||Download from||Windows||Linux||Mac OSX|
|Aldec Active-HDL, Student Edition||Students only||Aldec Download page||Yes||No||No|
|ModelSim Altera Starter Edition||Only Altera FPGAs||Altera Quartus Web Edition||Yes||Yes||No|
|ISim||Only Xilinx FPGAs||Xilinx Webpack||Yes||Yes||No|
|GHDL||limited features; only VHDL-93||GHDL website||Yes||Yes||Yes|
We have not had great results with FreeHDL or with Green Mountain VHDL. It seems that these projects may have been terminated.
GHDL on Mac OSX uses Wine, but works without problems.
