What's a good Verilog compiler?

  1. I need to program a PAL for a project. I have a Data I/O burner, but no
    way to convert logic equations to a fuse map to program. Are there any
    freebes, or at least something that won't empty my piggy bank?

  2. Here is one opensource tool.

  3. Pankajkumar,

    Do you have any experience with the Icarus Verilog compiler? Does it
    work? Aparently, they have a PAL version that doesn't work under
    Windoze, but I would think that their full version compiler would work
    for PALs. Any thoughts?

  4. Hi,

    I have experience using it under Linux and other Unix like systems, never
    under windows. It does work well under these platforms. As for
    windows, I'm not sure.

    Even if it doesn't work under windows, I think if you are willing to
    spend a few hours programming (if you enjoy that), it should be hard
    to modify it to produce PAL fuse maps, from a subset of verilog.
    Hell, a couple of times, I just defined a small subset of verilog I
    was interested in and wrote a parser myself.

    Another program that you might try using is the ver program. This is
    a verilog structural netlist compiler.

    Hope this helps,
