I just wrote my model in python-myhdl. Each iteration takes approximately 34 seconds with python-2.7 (Ubuntu-16.04), and 24 seconds with pypy. Thanks to myhdl, it didn’t take much time to write the model.
I am planning to run my model for much longer time. I looked at the performance page of myhdl: it seems to me that with verilog or VHDL, I won’t be able to get very much speedup. I am reluctant to convert it to VHDL/Verilog because of time I need to spend given my proficiency in these languages. However, I am comfortable with SystemC + boost. My aim is just to run the simulation.
I was wondering if someone has benchmarked myhdl with systemc? Would systemc be “on average” faster than myhdl (with pypy)?.
