Mountain View, Calif. - November 30, 2005
--Globetech Solutions, a premier provider of design verification and silicon test solutions, announced today availability of its latest verification intellectual property (VIP) product based on the newly released Consumer Electronics Advanced Technology Attachment (CE-ATA) industry standard. The VIP leverages Cadence's verification process automation (VPA) technology to deliver an unparalleled plan-to-closure verification solution.
The CE-ATA standard defines an optimized storage interface for small form-factor disk drives tailored to the needs of the handheld and consumer electronics market segments such as PDAs, mobile phones, digital cameras and others. The standard enjoys strong industry support by companies such as Hitachi, Intel, Marvell, Nokia, Seagate, and Toshiba.
Globetech Solutions' VIP fully automates verification of CE-ATA compliant Hosts or Devices. Written in the IEEE P1647 e Verification Language (HVL) and fully compatible with Cadence's e Reuse Methodology (eRM), the CE-ATA VIP offers directed-random testbench automation, encapsulated checking and coverage collection capabilities. Furthermore, the environment supports coverage-driven verification and advanced management features and is optimized for Cadence's Enterprise VPA family of products, such as Verification Manager. Multilingual support is planned for future versions.
"The CE-ATA standard timely addresses market requirements for low voltage, power efficient, and cost effective storage", said Ann Germany, Director of Strategic Marketing for Globetech Solutions. "Just as timely, the CE-ATA VIP extends Cadence's Incisive Enterprise family with this new verification capability, enabling customers to meet stringent consumer driven time-to-market demands."
"Our customers are increasingly challenged by the rise in design complexity and need to take advantage of effective verification reuse to be competitive", said Dave Tokic, Marketing Director for the Cadence Verification Division. "Globetech's CE-ATA VIP leverages the unique technology, methodology, and management strengths of the Incisive Verification Platform to provide a powerful and reusable plan to closure solution for the storage market."
The CE-ATA VIP is currently available on Cadence Incisive Enterprise and Specman Elite platforms.About Globetech Solutions
