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.

The flags that are used depend on the target that is selected, and are described in target specific documentation. Variables cerilog the libdir are substituted.

Icarus Verilog will by default choose modules that are not instantiated in any other modules, but sometimes that is not sufficient, or instantiates too many modules. It operates as a compiler, compiling source code written in Verilog IEEE into some target format. And finally, the current “git” repository is available ixarus read-only access via anonymous git cloning. Select the Verilog language generation to support in the compiler. Only the git source.

This is a synthesis target that supports a variety of fpga devices, mostly by EDIF format output.

This enables warnings for use of features that have been deprecated or evrilog in the selected generation of the Verilog language. Retrieved from ” http: The mailing lists for Icarus Verilog are hosted by sourceforge. See Command Files below.


Add suffix to the list of accepted file name suffixes used when searching a library for cells. This will continue to be maintained until rendered obsolete by a new stable release. A System function table file is used to describe to the compiler the return types for system functions.

When disabled, specify blocks are parsed but ignored. The standard requires that if any input to a continuous assignment expression changes value, the entire expression is re-evaluated.

The Icarus Verilog compiler supports module libraries as directories that manal Verilog source manaul. The main porting target is Linux, although it works well on many similar operating systems. There are two releases of this.

These examples assume that you have a Verilog source file called hello. You can compile it entirely with free tools, too, although there are icaruw binaries of stable releases.

This allows for those who which to track my progress and contribute with patches timely access to the most bleeding edge copy of the source. Add this module to the list verilot VPI modules to be loaded by the simulation. The cmdfile may be on the same line or the next non-comment line. See the gEDA home page for information about that project, and information about how to join the mailing list. Enable default or disable support for extended types.

The entire string is replaced with the contents of that variable. Icarus Verilog users are often gEDA users as well. Icarus Verilog has been ported to That Other Operating System, as a command line tool, and there are installers for users without compilers. It can be found here.


However, disabling specify blocks reduces accuracy of full-timing simulations. Variables are substituted in file names. Normally, if the target can accept behavioral descriptions the compiler will leave processes in behavioral form. Covered Covered is a coverage analysis tool. More details are available here Cocotb Cocotb uses VPI to embed the Python interpreter into the simulator and provides a Python library for accessing and assigning signal values, traversing the simulation heirarchy and writing regression tests.

This is a quick summary of where to get Icarus Verilog. Access the git repository of Icarus Verilog with verilpg commands:.

User Guide

Enabling extended types allows for new types that are supported by Icarus Verilog as extensions beyond the baseline Verilog. Read here for complete details on subjects that were introduced in the guides above. Although both sections are written in prose with examples, the second section is more detailed and presumes the basic understanding of the first part.

It may be necessary to disable extended types if compiling code that clashes with the few new keywords used to implement the type system.

The output is one file name per line, with no leading or trailing space. This is the source for your favorite free implementation of Verilog!
