Jasper, AMD Ink Long-Term Formal Verification Deal

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 27, 2009 Jasper Design Automation today announced it has signed a long-term agreement with AMD (NYSE: AMD) to place JasperGold formal verification technology in AMD design centers worldwide.

“We chose Jasper formal due to the level of their technology, methodology and support,” said Paul Tobin, Director of AMD's Verification Center of Expertise. “Jasper solutions help AMD to improve quality and reduce schedule risk. Jasper is now broadly accessible to multiple processor and graphics projects.”

AMD’s work with JasperGold exemplifies Jasper’s “Targeted ROI” philosophy, solving customers’ most critical design challenges in ways that also speed time to market, reduce overhead, and mitigate risk.

Tobin cited a recent example involving a complex, next-generation multi-core processor design. Designers wanted to prove that resource starvation would never occur in a new logic design; high-level analysis for which simulation alone is often insufficient. Using JasperGold’s unique interactive proof and liveness property capabilities, AMD was able to prove very early that this would not occur, saving extensive simulation time and gaining confidence in the extensive proof that formal verification can provide.

“Formal verification helps in the discovery of subtle RTL issues which are difficult or even impossible to detect in simulation,” Tobin added. “We strive to thoroughly verify critical logic in these complex designs to ensure discrepancies never have an impact on silicon, and Jasper helps us towards achieving that goal.”
