Simulation of a circuit consisting PowerPC processor and FPGAs


I want to simulate a circuit consisting of PowerPC processor and FPGAs as main components. Is it possible to verify the schematic and functionality of all the components in some CAD tool before getting all the things stuffed on PCB? What tools can do this job?

Regards Zubair

You can verify the schematic/PCB connectivity with a a Design Rule Check(DRC). FPGA functionality can be checked with the likes of ModelSim, but that's getting very complex indeed, and if you have to ask the question then I doubt you posses the skills to do it. You basically can't "simulate" such a system as a whole, only various parts of it.
