What is ModelSim SE?
ModelSim SE is the cross-platform edition of the ModelSim HDL (hardware description language) simulation software. The software is categorized as the large block/system simulation version of the software suite, whereas the two others that also belong to the simulation suite (ModelSim PE and ModelSim DE) are block/simulation system programs. The HDL environment enables the user, generally engineers, to test and debug an HDL model; which are essential steps to ensure that the design of the HDL model will pass verification. It is generally utilized for Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) circuit design and Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) design.
The software’s general components include an HDL editor, a project management system, source code templates, compiled database and native-compiled architecture, and incremental compilation. ModelSim SE supports the VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) and Verilog.
For the debugging process, the design team is allowed to perform post-simulation debugging; and is provided with tools for source annotation, hyperlinked navigation, C debugging, assertion thread debugging and advanced FSM debugging.
ModelSim SE is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
