CVC Verilog Simulator Benchmarks
If you simply want to see CVC's performance compared to other simulators on one design, please visit the Verilator benchmarks page.
To run the benchmarks on CVC or any other Verilog simulator, simple click on 'source' to download the Verilog source and pass in the Verilog file list (usually with -f run.flist) to the simulator. Designs are from www.opencores.com with minor modifications so that they are easy to run on any simulator. Listed CVC simulation times were run on an Intel i5 2500k 3.3 Ghz processor.
For example to run the usb11 open core design with CVC:
All example design source directories have a 'run.flist' standard Verilog -f option argument that contains the list of files needed to run the simulation. A 'cvc.log' file is also present in the top level of the directory. It contains expected simulation results and times. For CVC, you need to use the +verbose option so that compilation, simulation and loading times are printed.
