Cupertino, Calif.-August 28, 2006-Tarek Verification Systems, LLC. (Tarek) has signed an agreement with DSM Silicon Solutions, LLC. (DSM) for distributing Tarek's products, Draco and PCIE-VR, in the central region of the USA.
Draco is a complete ASIC verification solution that consists of a set of automation tools. With Draco, verification engineers are dedicated 90% of their time working on assertion models because most of the traditional verification tasks, such as coding for verification environment and test cases, are automated.
PCIE-VR is a VIP for PCI Express. It is not only fully models and monitors PCI Express functionality, timing, and protocols but also generates realistic sophisticated concurrent-test scenarios automatically in all three layers. For the transaction layer verification, PCIE-VR features a multi-threaded traffic generator that greatly simplifies the verification of concurrent access to the designs. For the data link and physical layers, PCIE-VR features powerful randomized state transition loop mechanisms that exhaustively verify the flow control protocol and state machines.
"We are very excited about having Tarek as a business partner", states Michael Walton, the President of DSM, "All of our customers, both large and small, will benefit from the time-to-market improvements that the Tarek's verification products provide."
"Draco has been proven to provide the best ratio of ASIC verification engineers to designers, which is 1:2.5, instead of the traditional 2:1. ", says Tao Chen, VP of Engineering at Tarek, "With Michael's extensive expertise in sales, more customers will benefit from the use of Draco."
Tarek Verification Systems, LLC. was founded in 2004. It develops ASIC verification automation solutions and highly automated verification IPs for repeatable on-time first-silicon success and significantly shorter time to market. Tarek's innovative technology enables verification engineers as well as designers to create quality and sophisticated tests automatically. For more information, please visit www.tarek.com.
