how about it ?

vcs 7.0

I think VCS is a very fast simulation tool in RTL.
But 7.0 seems not be released by s*y*n*o*p*s*y*s.


yes, not release yet

nanosim vcs a2d

Will VCS 7.0 has NT version?
LDV released 4.0 for NT.

synopsys pub vcs

Will VCS 7.0 has NT version?
I guess no.
More and more synopsys tools do not support windows.
VCS 6.2 has no NT version. VCS 7.0 would not, either. 8O

verilog vcs

Wish it has Linux version !

syntax vcs

However, who can provide the license for VCS 6.2?

You've been warned

I wonder why do they give up the windows market where Cadence IC tools is moving to Linux based PC?

Porting unix program to linux is easier than to windows.
And you don't need you pay any to microsoft.

For EDA, linux is more stable than windows currently.

I think the vcs 7.0 will support more tools than older version...
ex : vera , formality ...etc , and they don't support NT version...

LDV4.1 hav no nt version too. It seem the LDV4.0 is the last nt version . from ldv4.1 , it add the ABV(Assertion Base Verification) support very different from v4.0 .
