eInfochips possesses extensive complex chip/SoC design and verification experience, having executed a multitude of customer projects in the communications, networking and computer peripheral domains.
eInfochips was chosen for its technical expertise and proven project management skills. This move follows EVE's announcement earlier this year that it will offer a catalog of peripheral intellectual property (IP) components to address wireless, graphics/video/multimedia, networking and embedded processor markets. Components are organized in three families -- synthesizable memory models, hardware bridges and synthesizable transactors -- and allow EVE to offer vertical solutions of its ZeBu ("zero bugs"). eInfochips will develop synthesizable transactors to support popular standard and proprietary protocols.
Transactors will interface with a testbench written in C/C++/SystemC/SystemVerilog at a high level of abstraction to a design under test (DUT) mapped in ZeBu and mimic a specific protocol. Designed to provide fast execution speed, they will be based on the ZeBu application programming interface (API) and will be mapped onto the Reconfigurable Test bench (RTB), EVE's proprietary and patented technology. eInfochips is currently developing an AMBA-AHB transactor, specifically designed for EVE's ZeBu-UF/XL ASIC Emulators. The transactor, fully compliant to the AMBA AHB 2.0 protocol can be used to verify AHB-slave designs on the ZeBu platform.
"eInfochips' reputation for developing quality components is well deserved," notes Lauro Rizzatti, general manager of EVE-USA and vice president of worldwide marketing. "We believe that we've found the ideal partner with a value system of support and service that matches ours. We look forward to a close, cooperative relationship."
"Our partnership with EVE will enable eInfochips to extend its functional verification expertise to hardware accelerator-based verification," says Tapan Joshi, vice president marketing of eInfochips. "We look forward to developing a library of transactor IP for various domains jointly with EVE, and leveraging this expertise to provide verification & validation services to our customers, ensuring successful tape-out."
