Is there a cheap or free version of System Verilog?

I'm interested in learning it on my own computer before applying for some local jobs that require it.

What do you mean by "version".

Now, in the case of a language like C, one might ask for
a cheap or free compiler, but not a cheap or free version of C.

In the case of system verilog, though, you might want a simulator
or logic synthesis system. Two different things, but neither
are a version of System Verilog.

So I picked the wrong word.

I'm mainly interested in a simulator, but also somewhat in a logic synthesis system.

Both Xilinx and Altera have free versions of their FPGA software,
including both simulation and synthesis.

I haven't followed how close to System Verilog they are, though.

You might look at those.

No System Verilog support from Xilinx, yet. I heard Vivado
would have it, but that won't be free.

So far I haven't been so interested in System Verilog.

I mostly write structural verilog and continuous assignment,
and, as far as I know, that hasn't changed much.

I already have enough experience in Verilog (not System Verilog)
that I'm currently not looking for any more. Most of it was in
ASICs, not FPGAs.

The freebie Modelsim provided by Altera with Quartus (Altera Starter
Edition) supports most SystemVerilog. There was a thread about it a year
or two ago.

I don't know of any free tools for synthesis.

Please check the Xilinx, Altera, Lattace and Acronix FPGA sites first.

----------------------------------------

You can go for Modelsim SE or Questasim from Mentor Graphics...
there is also tool "VCS" from Synopsys used for functional verification.
but VCS can only be run on Linux platform.

There is a free web browser-based IDE that lets you simulate SystemVerilog: http://www.edaplayground.com

It is specifically designed for educational purposes. It also includes a couple synthesis tools.
