Behavioral Simulation in FPGAs

16/08/2019, hardwarebee

An FPGA simulation can roughly be defined as an attempt to imitate or recreate the execution of a design or the operation of a system in an artificially produced environment. The simulation uses a model that is extremely close to or almost the same as the actual subject at question.
