Electronic – Free VerilogA simulators


There are plenty of free SPICE and Verilog simulators out there such as LTSPICE or TINA or even WinSPICE. There are also several Verilog simulators as well. However, I am looking for free VerilogA simulators. Does anyone know one?

The GPL spice simulator Ngspice has an extension called ADMS that compiles Verilog-AMS code into C code that works with the API used by spice simulators. So you'd end up with something that could be compiled into an executable that a spice simulator (like Ngspice) could simulate.

Since Verilog-A is apparently just a subset of Verilog-AMS, this may suit your needs.
