Los Altos, Calif. -- November 26, 2008 -- JEDA Technologies, the provider of ESL model validation automation, announced today the availability of its TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker for high-level SystemC models. The TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker is part of the JEDA TLM-2.0 Validation Suite. The product targets high-level OSCI TLM-2.0 model developers and OSCI TLM-2.0 compliant Virtual Platform users. The checker reduces high-level SystemC model development time and ensures interoperability with OSCI TLM-2.0 models coming from various sources. The checker has been applied on various freely available TLM-2.0 SystemC models and has found several rule violations resulting in loss of transactions, system crashes and hard-to-find system-level malfunctions that no other checker found. The JEDA TLM-2.0 Checker can easily be applied to either existing models or models under development. The TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker is suited for TLM-2.0 model unit testing or system level testing. With JEDA’s configurable traffic generator and TLM-2.0 coverage tools, the checker makes JEDA TLM-2.0 Validation Suite a complete TLM-2.0 validation solution.
“The OSCI TLM-2.0 protocol enables interoperability of the models in the Synopsys DesignWare System-Level Library, and checking protocol correctness is an important step of our validation process,” said Frank Schirrmeister, director of product marketing of the Solutions Group at Synopsys, “Using automated protocol checking accelerates the development of TLM-2.0 compliant models and contributes to the high quality of Synopsys’ transaction-level models”.
“We are excited about how much positive feedback we get for our TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker,” said Andrea Kroll, VP marketing of JEDA Technologies, Inc.” By providing a TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker to automatically detect rule violations and to ensure TLM-2.0 interoperability, we are enabling the proliferation of the TLM-2.0 standard in the industry.”
“The TLM-2.0 standard defines a rigorous set of semantics and rules that enable interoperability of models.” stated Mike Meredith, president of OSCI. “OSCI is very pleased with the breadth of industry support the standard is getting and we welcome the addition of the JEDA TLM-2.0 Validation Suite to the ecosystem.”
The JEDA TLM-2.0 Validation Suite including the TLM-2.0 Compliance Checker is available immediately.
