modelsim questa

YES!

Systemverilog support (in Modelsim) began in version 6.1. Each new release since 6.1 has fixed bugs and added more Systemverilog features.

As of 6.2b, Modelsim supports most of Systemverilog's "design" features, and a great deal of verification features, but not everything.

Also, to use classes, assertions, and random variables, you must buy the "Questa" license feature -- this is not included in the base Modelsim license!

Hint: download the Modelsim 6.2g PE Student Edition from Modelsim's website. The included readme (sysvlog.txt) gives a precise (Systemverilog) feature-list.

modelsim systemverilog

HI,
I designed SDRAM controller in Systemverilog, simulated using modelsim SE 6.2b it works excellent. I used almost all the constructs which are there in systemverilog for design.

systemverilog & modelsim

Hi,
if u are planning to use the functional coverage and testbench automation features of systenverilog, you should look for Questa, which is the superset of Modelsim.

cheers

yesssss :)

Questa is for testbench automation, coverage-driven verification (CDV), assertion-based verification (ABV), and transaction-level modeling (TLM).

verilog system verilog modelsim forum

Till now, it does not fully support systemverilog,it only support part of features of sv.

Mentor offers two different levels of Systemverilog support.
For Modelsim PE/LE/SE, the Verilog-license gives you Verilog and Systemverilog(Design) support. Systemverilog(Design) means language constructs for synthesizeable-RTL.

To get COMPLETE systemverilog support (design, assertion, testbench), Mentor offers the Questasim option for Modelsim/SE. This Questasim is a SEPARATE license, and adds assertion/testbench features.

Cadence's Incisive is similar. I think the basic Incisive HDL simulator only offers basic Systemverilog support. To get Systemverilog-assertions/testbench features, you must upgrade to the Cadence 'Team Design Simulator' (or Elite Simulator).
