SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 20, 2007— The LSI Networking group has achieved substantial performance improvements on new devices using VaST virtual prototyping solutions. The VaST tools help analyze and optimize the architectures of microprocessor based systems and now are the preferred solution for architecture analysis and pre-silicon software development for the LSI Networking group.
Using VaST candidate architectures can be quickly created and
tested against performance goals using the actual software
applications. This allows more optimal design of the processing
elements, bus topology, and subsystem. As a result of this success,
LSI will standardize on VaST's technology for current and future
designs in the Networking group.
"Before committing we performed extensive analysis of the
performance and accuracy of VaST tools and found VaST superior to our
alternative tools on both fronts. This solution has changed the way we
analyze architectures and develop software. Because the virtual
prototype has better performance and visibility, we are more
productive in software development prior to HW availability and even
use the virtual prototype after silicon availability," said Gene
Scuteri, VP of Network Components Group of LSI.
"VaST's tools support the complete embedded system design flow
from architecture to software development. LSI's success is further
evidence of how industry leaders are rapidly deploying virtual
prototyping, and standardizing on VaST," said Jeff Roane vice
president of marketing of VaST Systems.
VaST Systems Technology Corporation solutions enable the creation
of a virtual system prototype -- a highly 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.
VaST is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California with sales and support
offices worldwide. For more information, visit www.vastsystems.com.
