(Other stories by Richard Goering)
"Marking a significant win for Linux-based EDA, Model Technology Inc. this week will announce the availability of its ModelSim EE and SE VHDL, Verilog and dual-language simulators on Linux platforms. The company is also claiming to field the first HDL simulator with 64-bit support."
"The Linux port resulted from a strong user demand, said John Lenyo, director of marketing at Model Technology. "To gauge general demand, we mentioned it casually in our quarterly newsletter," he said. "You would have thought we were giving away free money. About two days after that newsletter went out we were bombarded with requests from customers."
"The demand for Linux, said Lenyo, is coming from customers who want to add low-cost workstations to "simulation farms" that can considerably boost simulation speed and capacity. Lenyo said that some installations have as many as 10 simulation seats per designer."
