Simulation Tools.

Having useful simulation tools is critical for a good design. Testing of can be quite different than testing regular C code. The output of hardware is simply signal values that can span many different values over long periods of time. Having a simulator that can allow that much data and also allow the user to browse through it is necessary for efficient detection of design errors.

This project offered me an interesting experience into the work of hardware design. Overall, having a challenging project that yields interesting results provides a great deal of motivation to build a great project.
