Icarus Verilog is a Verilog simulation and synthesis tool. It operates as a compiler , compiling source code written in Verilog (IEEE) into some target format. Abstract. This document briefly introduces how to use Icarus Verilog to simulate your design. You can get this tool from the CD-ROM of your textbook or course. DESCRIPTION. iverilog is a compiler that translates Verilog source code into executable programs for simulation, or other netlist formats for further processing.

Even so, I am a software engineer writing software for hardware designers, so expect the occasional communications glitch: This allows for those who which to track my icaeus and contribute with patches timely access to the most bleeding edge copy of the source.

The value part of the token is optional. The links here contain more advanced information on select subjects. Use this switch to select min, typ or max times from min: Variables in the file are substituted. These are articles that describe in clear prose, with examples, the basics of using Icarus Verilog.

This token causes file names after this in the command file to be translated to uppercase. If it finds such a file, it loads it as a Verilog source file, they tries again to elaborate icaruz module.

Many modules can be specified, and all will be loaded, in the order specified. The Icarus Verilog fpga code generator can generate complete designs or EDIF macros that can in turn be imported into larger designs by other tools. Specify blocks are commonly not needed for RTL simulation, and in fact can hurt performance of the simulation.

Use this switch to specify the target output format. This is useful, for example, to preprocess Verilog source for use icaruz other compilers. Who is Icarus Verilog? This is the user guide: The list defaults to verillg single entry. The mailing lists for Icarus Verilog are hosted by sourceforge. The missing module name in a lookup need not match the file name case, as long as the letters are correct.

Preprocess the Verilog source, but do not compile it. Ciarus module files should contain only a single module, but this is not a requirement. The output is a complete program that simulates the design but must be run by the vvp command. The default is 32, the value can be any desired integer value.

The flags that are used depend on the target that is selected, and are described in target specific documentation. Read here for complete details on subjects that were introduced in the guides above.


If the user specifies library search directories, the compiler will search the directory for files with the name of the missing module type. This allows the programmer to select the width cap for unsized expressions. Specify the top level module to elaborate. Retrieved from ” http: Add the specified file nanual the list of source files to be compiled, but mark it as a library file. These snapshots follow development progress, and, although the latest features are included in this source, compatibility from snapshot to snapshot is not guaranteed.

This enables warnings for always statements that may have runtime infinite loops has paths with no or zero delay. Where is Icarus Verilog? Simbus Simbus supports distributed simulations of bussed systems.

This allows the same control variable to be used in multiple processes without risk of entering an infinite loop caused by each process triggering all other processes that use the same varaible. Access the git repository of Icarus Verilog with the commands:. You can compile it entirely with free tools, too, although idarus are precompiled binaries of stable releases.

The test suite is also accessible as the ivtest github.
