Yes there is. Take a look at the packages collection (follow the
"software" link from www.netbsd.org). Some packages I recommend are:
cad/verilog -- this is icarus verilog. It works pretty well for verilog
simulation. I've used it both for school and work quite a
bit. It also can do some synthesis for xilinx FPGA's.
cad/dinotrace -- useful for plotting .vcd files that come from verilog
simulations. does digital waveforms only.
cad/spice -- good for analog circuit simulation
some of the other cad and math packages may be useful. I also find
math/scilab very useful in my engineering work.
Hope this helps.
