Ready to take the next step in simulation technology with a true third-generation engine, with multi-core technology? Cadence® Xcelium™ Simulator allows you to have unprecedented control over your tests including to further tailor test sequencing to your specific hardware needs.
Get started immediately with the new release Xcelium 17.04 by using the central page on https://support.cadence.com to learn everything you need to know about installation, licensing, and easily migrating projects from Incisive to Xcelium.
Visit the page - https://support.cadence.com/xcelium It lists important links to Xcelium simulator documents. Visit the “one-stop shop" page to get all you need to install and use the release.
The Xcelium Simulator Introduction helps you introduce the Xcelium simulator with detail in changes in the Xcelium single-core engine, and describes recommended steps to take when upgrading to Xcelium from Incisive.

The new Xcelium software installation is focused on the core simulation engines. But Xcelium is only the foundational part of an overall digital simulation methodology. To know what is included in the core simulator download and optional Xcelium components, as well as other key products available for the Cadence simulation flow, you have got to read this article - What technologies are installed as part of the Xcelium release
And if you are wondering about ways to determine which licenses will be required before running a simulation – all your questions are answered here - How to list the licenses requested or being consumed by the Xcelium tools
Xceligen is the next generation random-constraint solver released as part of Xcelium Simulator. It contains new components as well as major enhancements. This document Xceligen - Next Generation SV Constraint Solver describes how to take advantage of the new technology using constraint solver switches and environment variables.
We have also built a Cadence support matrix to list the Xcelium release versions cross-indexed with the other verification engine and Verification IP (VIP) release versions available. The Xcelium Flow Support Integration Matrices includes recommended version combinations, version combinations under investigation at Cadence, and version combinations not recommended.
Also, there are many troubleshooting articles that generally provide helpful hints and solutions to address design problems while using Xcelium simulator in the flow. We have collected important articles, categorizing them by methodology or flow topic on this page under “Methodology and Flow Topics”.
And finally under Knowledge Resources, you can find access to our Application Notes, Videos, Rapid Adoption Kits related to Xcelium simulator and technology.
