Customer Reviews

"Comtech EF Data engineering has used and compared many other FPGA design entry and simulation tools. Active-HDL far surpasses the competition in tool features and user-friendly interfaces; with a much lower price-tag."
Dennis Bennett, Comtech EF Data - USA

"Active-HDL simulator enables us to simulate the design many times using a set of stimulus. This leads to improved the quality of the design. Also easy to use waveform viewer help us to debug the design by many features."
AISIN SEIKI Co., Ltd. - Japan
