What is ModelSim Altera Starter Edition?

The ModelSim ALTERA STARTER EDITION (Figure 4) uses the HDL design files and vendor libraries to create a simulation of the hardware design. In its current version the tool can only simulate projects containing one kind of HDL. The tool allows to simulate the functional behaviour of the system.

How do I run a program in Quartus?

Running Simulation Using the Quartus II NativeLink Software

  1. Step 1: Check Settings. On the Assignments menu, click EDA Tool Settings to open the Settings dialog box and then click Simulation.
  2. Step 2: Run Simulation. Go to Tools menu, select the Run EDA Simulation Tools, and choose which type of simulation you want to use:

What is the difference between ModelSim and QuestaSim?

Questa is Mentor’s flagship product that has full System Verilog simulation support. Modelsim is an older product that has limited support for System Verilog. If you plan on using OVM/UVM then you would want to go with Questa, otherwise Modelsim is good enough.

Is the FPGA Starter Edition the same as ModelSim?

ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA starter edition software is the same as ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA edition software except for two areas.

How to configure Quartus to use Altera ModelSim?

1)Create a new Quartus Project & configure it for Altera-Modelsim To configure Quartus to use Altera-Modelsim as the simulator, first create a new project (or open an existing one) and go to Assignments > Settings > EDA Tool Settings > Simulation.

How does ModelSim shorten FPGA verification time?

Shorten your Intel® FPGA verification time by using the ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA software in your Intel® FPGA design flow. ModelSim*-Intel® FPGA software supports behavioral and gate-level simulations, including VHDL or Verilog test benches for all Intel® FPGA devices.

How to start a timing simulation in Altera?

Click “zoom full” and observe the simulated waveforms. right-click the test bench and select recompile. make sure that you click the Restart button directly to the right of the simulation time window (or simply type restart at the command prompt). Before you start a timing simulation, first close ModelSim.
