Re: Simulation Tools

Are you referring to design functional simulation? If yes, I think the Modelsim Altera starter edition will be a good one to start with.

Re: Simulation Tools

Perhaps you may refer to the link below: 

https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/design-software/quartus-ii/simulation.html 

It would cover the simulation tools other than modelsim. 

 

For signal integrity check, you could have the IBIS simulation.

Re: Simulation Tools

There are several tools 

Modelsim 

Active hdl 

Ncsim 

 

These all require a license, but have lots of features. Some have cute down free version. 

 

There are a few free vhdl and verilog simulators, but they are mostly hobby projects, harder to use and no where near as fully featured.

Re: Simulation Tools

Hi Metaboy, 

 

If you are working with the Altera FPGA, I think the best would be to use the Modelsim Altera Starter edition because it is free and also come with pre-compiled Altera libraries which will ease you simulation.
