What our customers are saying
"Fintronic's Verilog simulators have played a significant role in the
verification of our designs for the past three years. The excellent
price/performance ratio, robustness and integration with third party
software as well as the outstandingly superior customer support
provided by Fintronic were the critical advantages for us in selecting
Fintronic's Verilog simulators. We consider that Fintronic's
simulators are the best choice for large farms for Verilog
Godfrey D'Souza, Vice President VLSI design, Transmeta Corporation
"By running on over 120 Linux machines, Super FinSim has dramatically
reduced our regression time. Due to its robustness and cost-effectiveness,
it has been and will be a critical part of our design verification process.
Thus far, this tool enabled us to tapeout more than 10 very complex ASICs -
some with more than 5 million gates. The Fintronics technical staff has
been very attentive to our needs and responsive to our requests
Ken Cai, Design Verification Manager, Mindspeed Technologies,
"We have been using Finsim for the past three years on
Linux based x86 systems. We have used different third
party tools like Specman and undertow along with Finsim.
We have been extremely happy with Finsim. We were able
to simulate multi-million gate designs for our customers.
The customer support is excellent and engineers
are highly experienced and were able to help us in solving
problems related to C/PLI. We highly recommend Finsim
for verilog simulation
Babu Kandimalla, CEO, Audio Video Millennium, Inc.
" We completed our first design with SuperFinsim and its working in silicon.
SuperFinsim performed very well. All of the development was conducted with
SuperFinsim including unit gate level simulations. Our simulation vectors
and design were also validated with Cadence Verilog-XL and no significant
compatibility issues were found. There were some differences in the random
simulations as we discovered that SuperFinsim and Verilog-XL produced
different results on $random given the same seed. Overall, our satisfaction
level with SuperFinsim's compatibility, reliability, performance and
technical support is very high.".
Ryan Callison, President, BREA Technologies, Inc.
"FinSim is an outstanding product, the price is much lower than comparable
simulators and the technical support is terrific. I use FinSim on Windows NT (yes I'd love
to move to Linux but the whole tool chain isn't there yet...) but I assume the Linux
version is just as good as the NT version. I don't work for FinSim, or have friends who
work there, etc. I'm just a very satisfied customer. I can't say enough good things about
their product, or their tech support".
Brian Rogoff, Consultant
"By the way, if you don't mind a compliment, FinSim is just
amazing. It's very very quick (even in interpreted mode), very thorough in analyzing the
source. It's the best piece of EDA SW I have dealt with. You should write a synthesis tool
as well :-)".
Zoltan Kocsi, Bendor, Inc.
"I'm using Fintronic's FinSim and I love it. It runs on NT (which
I've used), but I run it on Linux. I'm simulating some large designs and it works great
(RTL, gate-level, SDF -- haven't tried the PLI yet). You can get it packaged with Undertow
(very nice) for $3400.00 (I think they have a different but similar package for NT). Great
customer support, too. Check it out at www.fintronic.com".
Mark Hess, Consultant
"I am very satisfied with your product and your company. FinSim
will play an important role in building Silicon Partners, Inc. You may use me as a
reference any time. I am currently using FinSim on a design of over 32,000 lines of
Verilog code. It was initially developed using Cadence Verilog-XL, and when I started
using FinSim, the design simulated with absolutely no modification. Even the Verilog-XL
command file required no modification for FinSim. That's compatibility"!
John Wilkes, Logic Probe, Inc.
"If anyone is interested, I'm using FinSim (www.fintronic.com) and
Undertow (www.veritools-web.com) on Linux. SpeedSim is another Verilog Linux simulator
available from Quickturn. I think it was ~$40K list price while FinSim was $10K list.
FinSim also matched our NC Verilog runs from hp workstations perfectly while SpeedSim
didn't and we didn't have time to investigate the differences. Design Acceleration offers
a waveform viewer similar to undertow, but they were requiring a sun license server to
authenticate the Linux boxes. I'm only using Linux in my home office, so that wasn't very
