SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 10, 2006— VaST Systems -- the technology leader in embedded design -- today announced that it has joined the Wind River Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:WIND) partnership program. Wind River is the global leader in device software optimization (DSO), allowing companies to develop, run and manage device software faster, better, at lower cost and more reliably. Wind River's world-class partner ecosystem assures tight integration between Wind River's core technologies and VaST Systems' virtual prototyping solutions.
VaST's ultra-fast and cycle-accurate processor, bus and peripheral
models -- coupled with VaST's CoMET(R) and METeor(TM) tools -- provide
a systems engineering environment for the design of embedded systems
and system-on-chip (SoC). With VaST solutions, users create, then
simulate, analyze and optimize a model of their SoC in software, which
results in an optimized architecture and a fast and accurate platform
for software developers to use months before the actual hardware is
"System-level design touches all aspects of the design flow, from
architecture to hardware design and software development. Design
flow-focused integrations enable our partners and customers to enjoy
greater productivity for the entire design team," said Jeff Roane,
vice president of marketing at VaST Systems.
"Wind River and VaST have had an evolving relationship for some
time. The integration of our technologies creates a complete pre- to
post-silicon development environment covering architecture analysis
and optimization, firmware, middleware and application development.
VaST looks forward to aligning with Wind River's sales teams to create
enhanced value for our mutual customers and our respective companies,"
said Erin Marshall, vice president of North American sales for VaST
VaST Systems Technology Corporation solutions enable the creation
of a virtual system prototype -- a cycle-accurate software model of a
system that operates at near real-time speeds under actual software
loads. VaST's solutions are OSCI SystemC-compliant and are used for
architecture, hardware and software design. VaST solutions
dramatically improve time to market and quality while reducing
development costs and risk.
Current customers include worldwide leaders in semiconductors,
automotive electronics, wireless devices, and consumer electronics.
