Forgive my ignorance, but...
I need an RTL-level simulation package, which produces statistics, for a
small microprocessor I am designing as part of my Masters' thesis. This will
be a RISC-like functional architecture, with a small microcode driven
instruction set, pipelining, and hardware implemented garbage-collection.
As the design will be driven by simulation results, I need an easily
extensible package, with good documentation, and a good user interface.
I have access to VAX 11/780s, SUN and Apollo workstations, all running under
UNIX 4.2, and I would most appreciate information on public-domain software,
or inexpensive packages, as my budget is limited.
In addition, if anyone has pointers to good general documents on hardware
simulation, and/or some survey papers of available simulation packages, these
would prove most helpful. I'll eventually need switch-level simulations as
well, as I plan to fabricate the processor once it's functional design is
