If Scheme is acceptable, there's also Aubrey Jaffer's SIMSYNCH:

    Current Version 	Released 	Terms
    1b9 		2005-06-23 	GPL

    SIMSYNCH is a simulator for digital electronics at scales from
    chip to board.

    The design files are comprised of Scheme definitions and
    expressions. These design files can be run as a Scheme program
    at high speed. The design files can also be translated into
    formats suitable for logic compilers (MACHXL and Verilog).

    SIMSYNCH simulates blocks of synchronous logic, signals whose
    states change simultaneously on a clock signal transition. Each
    block also has a reset signal, which forces all signals to the
    state specified in the design file. SIMSYNCH can simultaneously
    simulate multiple blocks with different clocks and resets. Devices
    can contain multiple blocks; Blocks can span multiple devices.
