vcs-mx

VCS-MX is for mix language(verilog/VHDL)

vcsmx

You means VCS only for verilog and VCS-MX for both VHDL and verilog?

vcs vs vcsmx

I think it si mostly used used for Mixed Verilog and VHDL simulation, but not as popular as its mentor conterpart

A 78-month old post ... anyway, I just had the same question and would like to share my thoughts.

It is not about language. VCS supports VHDL, Verilog, SystemVerilog, SystemC, mixed-HDL, openVera, too.

I think VCS is a full suite of "Functional Verification Solution", and VCS-MX is merely a "simulator".

VCS-MX is for analyzing, elaborating, compiling and simulating a design and/or testbench. And VCS has much more features (besides a simulation engine), such as: comprehensive coverage, comprehensive assertion techniques, advanced visualization environment, etc. (Details are referred to: http://www.synopsys.com/Tools/Verification/FunctionalVerification/Pages/VCS.aspx)

I am suspecting VCS-MX can be used for mixed level simulation (analog & digital)

So, is it true that VCS = VCS-MX + other stuff while VCS-MX is for simulation environment only?
