2008 Highlights Include New Products, New Customers, Volume Deployment at Existing Customers
SAN JOSE, CALIF. –– January 13, 2009 –– EVE, the leader in hardware/software co-verification, today announced that it ended calendar year 2008 with year-to-year growth in excess of 30%. EVE attributes this success to its goal to deliver innovative, best-in-class, affordable products with the best return on investment (ROI) in the electronic design automation (EDA) industry.
In 2008, EVE consolidated its worldwide position as leader in transaction-based verification with 40 customers using this advanced mode of operation and rose to the #2 position in the emulation market.
“We expect to continue our growth despite the severe worldwide economic downturn,” emphasizes Dr. Luc Burgun, EVE’s Chief Executive Officer and President. “We are actively expanding and strengthening our hardware-assisted verification product offerings with the highest design capacity and unsurpassed execution speeds for current and next-generation electronic chip designs and embedded software validation.”
The year’s highlights include new products, new strategic customers and volume-adoption at companies already using EVE products in United States, Europe and Asia.
In March 2008, EVE introduced ZeBu-Personal, a desktop emulator for system-on-chip (SoC) hardware verification and software development that pushed the performance envelop to 60 megahertz. ZEMI-3, unveiled in May 2008, is a transaction behavioral modeling methodology that dramatically simplifies the creation of custom transactors compared to SCEMI-2 transactors with the additional benefit of performing at an order of magnitude higher speed.
In the course of the year, EVE expanded its library of verification intellectual property (IP), adding a PCIe Gen 2.0 16x lanes fast transactor with root complex and end-point controller capabilities to target processor and graphics chip applications. EVE also delivered two major software releases that cut set-up time and compilation time for very large designs, and raised the bar in hardware debugging by adding major debugging capabilities.
These new products and major breakthroughs to be announced throughout 2009 were made possible by EVE’s ongoing and substantial investment in its research and development efforts.
EVE is the worldwide leader in hardware/software co-verification solutions, including hardware description language (HDL) acceleration and extremely fast emulation. EVE products significantly shorten the overall verification cycle of complex integrated circuits and electronic systems designs. Its products also work in conjunction with popular Verilog, SystemVerilog, and VHDL-based software simulators from Synopsys, Cadence Design Systems and Mentor Graphics.
