Companies Sign Licensing Agreement
ALAMEDA , CALIF. –– August 15, 2012 –– Verific Design Automationtoday announced it licensed its industry-standard, IEEE-compliant SystemVerilog and VHDL platform to Aldec, Inc.,a global leader in electronic design verification, to be included into its Hardware Emulation Solution (HES™).
HES is a unified platformfor bit-level simulation acceleration, transaction-level emulation, system architecture exploration, hardware/software co-verification, virtual modeling and prototyping.Verific’sSystemVerilog and VHDL parsers and register transfer level (RTL) elaboratorshave been integrated with its Design Verification Manager (DVM™) software.
“Full language support (including SystemVerilog), well-tested software and outstanding customer support made integration with the Verific compiler an easy choice to simplify the design setup flow for HES-DVM,” says ZibiZalewski, general manager of Aldec’s Hardware Division. “We value the relationship we have established with Verific. With their compiler, HES-DVM now offers new debugging instrumentation and SCE-MI2.0 DPI Function Based support, and with their flexible customer support, our team was able to speed up the development schedule without any major issues.”
