Fenix-DA Replaces Internally Developed Software with Verific Design Automation

Cites Verific's Competency in Language Software Development

AT DAC Booth #655

Alameda, Calif. -- May 1, 2008 -- Verific Design Automation today said that Fenix-DA, developer of a new class of electronic design automation (EDA) tools aimed at quality assurance of integrated circuit (IC) design flows, has integrated Verific's VHDL and Verilog analyzers with Crossfire.

Crossfire checks various views and formats of standard-cell libraries in an IC design-flow and validates that they all are alike. While Crossfire supported Verilog, it didn't support VHDL. Once Fenix-DA evaluated Verific's VHDL analyzer and implemented it with Crossfire, it replaced its internally developed Verilog analyzer with Verific's as well.

"Our core competency is in the analysis of layout and SPICE views, not the parsing of Verilog and VHDL models," says Chris Strolenberg, chief technology officer at Fenix-DA. "Rather than developing the expertise on our own, we chose to license the parsers from Verific. It was an excellent decision." Verific's products serve as the front end to the most popular EDA tools for exploring, navigating, analyzing, documenting and modifying designs, including Verilog, SystemVerilog and VHDL parsers, analyzers and elaborators, and an RTL database. All are written in platform-independent C++ that compiles on Solaris, HP-UX, Linux and Windows platforms. Each is licensed as source code and come with support and maintenance. Verific will demonstrate its products at the 45th Design Automation Conference (DAC) in booth #655 June 9-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

"Fenix-DA is building a new class of EDA tools to give project teams more control over the time to market for their designs," remarks Rob Dekker, founder and president of Verific. "We're delighted to be part of this effort."
