ZeBu-Server Supports Up to 25 Users Concurrently, With Automatic Allocation of Available Resources
SAN JOSE , CALIF. –– December 15, 2009 –– EVE, the leader in hardware/software co-verification, today announced that its new emulation system ZeBu-Server offers superior multi-user capabilities that can support up to 25 users concurrently.
Each ZeBu-Server user or design can utilize any of the available resources, and allocation of the emulation resources is completely automatic. Each user can have a dedicated host PC with its own PCIe interface for maximum bandwidth and PC computing power. Multiple host PCs can also be connected to the same design to increase the communication bandwidth in transaction-based co-emulation to a maximum of five-million transactions per second.
“This multi-user capability enables engineers to fully utilize hardware-assisted verification throughout the project cycle,” states Lauro Rizzatti, EVE’s vice president of worldwide marketing. “ZeBu-Server can be used earlier in the project, on multiple sub-systems, and later used to verify and validate software on the full chip. The high utilization of the system contributes to ZeBu-Server having the lowest cost of ownership in the industry.”
ZeBu-Server can be used for all system-on-chip (SoC) verification needs across the entire development cycle, from hardware verification, hardware/software integration to embedded software validation. As a multi-mode accelerator/emulator, its typical performance is 10 megahertz (MHz) on a 40-million application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) gate design, with a minimum granularity of 10-million ASIC gates per user or design.
This scalable emulation system is capable of handling up to one-billion ASIC gates and is priced at less than a penny per gate for large configurations.
EVE is the worldwide leader in hardware/software co-verification solutions, including hardware description language (HDL) acceleration and extremely fast emulation, with installations at nine of the top 10 semiconductor companies. EVE products significantly shorten the overall verification cycle of complex integrated circuits and electronic systems designs. Its products work in conjunction with popular Verilog, SystemVerilog and VHDL-based software simulators from Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys.
