Mentor Graphics Veloce Emulation Platform Allows Inuitive to Achieve First-Pass Silicon Success

WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 25, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Mentor Graphics Corp. (Nasdaq: MENT), a leader in advanced system verification solutions, today announced that Inuitive, a developer of innovative technologies that improve user experiences for latest-generation mobile applications, has achieved first-pass silicon success using the Veloce® emulation platform for System-On-Chip (SoC) verification.

Inuitive's NUI (Natural User Interface) technology creates 3D depth map and intuitive mobile applications that understand and predict the actions a user wants to perform in any given situation.  Inuitive's NUI accomplishes this task in a simple and intuitive way. The key components of the technology are Inuitive's latest multi-core processor chip, NU3000, and their innovative software that improves the usability of various mobile devices, such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones, bringing a new level of user personalization to the device by completing various user tasks with one touch.

"To achieve the level of verification required for our designs, we chose the Veloce emulation platform from Mentor for its superior performance and excellent pre-and-post- silicon hardware-software debug environment," said Shlomo Gadot , CEO, Inuitive. "Our ability to perform pre-silicon Linux boot was made possible due to the high performance of Veloce, which would have been impractical in software simulation. Additionally, we were able to test our USB software drivers and other chip interfaces extensively prior to silicon being available. Once we received silicon samples, we were able to bring up and test our chips in a matter of days due to the resulting high quality of the design, which is a testament to the high-level of pre-silicon verification we achieved with Veloce."

"I am very pleased with Inuitive's success in creating first-pass silicon, and it is gratifying to see how the Veloce platform has been a key part of their hardware-software verification flow for their innovative SoC designs," said Eric Selosse, vice president, Mentor Emulation Division. "I wish Inuitive more success in the future and look forward to our continued collaboration on SoC verification requirements."
