PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 14, 2005 -- Denali Software today announced that ASIC Architect, Inc., a leader in PCI Express solutions, is using its PureSpec(TM) in the verification of PCI Express Cores and other solutions for storage, networking, wireless and consumer applications.
"PCI Express is a complex technology, and as a PCI Express solution provider, it is important that we verify our products with leading verification IP solutions. Using Denali's PureSpec to verify our PCI Express cores enables us to maintain the highest standard of quality for our PCI Express products," says Purna Mohanty, vice president of engineering at ASIC Architect, Inc. "We are committed to providing PCI Express solutions that offer customers low silicon footprint, high-performance, first-time silicon success, and a smooth transition to Gen2 of PCI Express. Denali's PureSpec is a critical piece in our strategy to maintain a high-quality product in all these dimensions."
PureSpec is a comprehensive solution for verifying functionality, compliance and interoperability of all features and functionality of the PCI Express specification. PureSpec verification IP includes a configurable bus functional model (BFM), protocol monitor, and complete assertion library for all PCI Express components in the topology, and all layers in the protocol.
"ASIC Architect is a premier developer of feature-rich IP cores for PCI Express designs," adds Denali Vice President David Lin. "The fact that it passed the PCI-SIG's compliance and interoperability test with PCI Express core on the first attempt is a testament to its commitment to delivering high- quality IP. We are pleased to provide a product that will further contribute to its product success."

About Denali PureSpec Verification IP
PureSpec is the most comprehensive verification IP solution for standard interfaces, including: PCI Express, Advanced Switching, USB, SATA, CE-ATA, and Ethernet. For PCI Express, PureSpec enables developers to verify functionality, compliance, and interoperability of designs at the pre-silicon stage of chip or IP core development. PureSpec verification IP includes a configurable BFM, protocol monitor, and complete assertion library for all components in the topology. The highly integrated nature of PureSpec's configurable model behavior and data monitoring engine provides a sophisticated approach to functional verification. This enables direct translation from test plan definition to implementation, greatly accelerating the verification task and overall system-level verification productivity.
