High-Quality Verification IP Assures Compliant and Low-Risk Implementation for Industry-Leading Ripcord Single-Chip CMOS Ultra Wideband (UWB) ProductsPALO ALTO, Calif. -- Jan. 8, 2008
-- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Staccato Communications has adopted PureSpec(TM) verification IP (VIP) to verify compliance with the latest protocol specifications and validate interoperability on their next generation single-chip all-CMOS WiMedia UWB ICs. Staccato's verification engineers chose Denali PureSpec VIP for its high-quality and seamless integration into their design and verification environment, providing a reliable and comprehensive framework for accelerating design cycle times.
"There is an increasing proliferation of devices that demand high bandwidth connectivity, and Staccato's Ripcord® UWB products deliver high data rate, lowest cost and longest battery life, enabling a cable-like wireless equivalent and new usage models," remarked Steven Larky, vice president of Engineering at Staccato Communications. "In order to achieve these goals in a very aggressive single-chip all-CMOS implementation, Denali was our first choice for their expertise and high-quality IP. We have reaped significant benefits from Denali's high-quality models and their reliable verification IP as it has helped us find critical bugs in our RTL as well as several bugs in our vendor supplied RTL IP, thus minimizing our overall time-to-market."
Staccato's Ripcord product family is comprised of single-chip, all-CMOS solutions for WiMedia UWB applications such as Wireless USB, Next-Generation Bluetooth, and WiMedia IP. Ripcord's high-level of integration minimizes design risk, lowers system cost and accelerates customers' time-to-market by consolidating all hardware and software components necessary to support multiple simultaneous protocols at 480 Mbps.
"Denali understands the challenges facing design and verification teams, including reaching time-to-market timelines while minimizing the impact on engineering resources," states David Lin, vice president of marketing at Denali Software. "Our customers, such as Staccato, confidently use our high-quality verification IP so that their designs can meet protocol compliance and significantly shorten the verification time required to bring their product to market."About Denali PureSpec
Denali's PureSpec verification IP is the most widely used product for verifying functionality, compliance and interoperability of standard interfaces at the pre-silicon stage of chip or IP core development. PureSpec verification IP includes a configurable bus functional model (BFM), protocol monitor, and complete assertion library for all components in the topology, including the host and one or multiple devices. PureSpec additionally provides an integrated data generation engine to help drive defined, pseudo-random bus traffic at all layers. A cumulative coverage database capability ensures that the overall test plan sufficiently exercises the design.
