Pre-silicon Compliance and Interoperability Solution Accelerates System Design Verification Targeting Computing, Virtualization, and FCoE Products
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2010 -- Denali Software, Inc., today announced the industry's first PureSpec-Ethernet verification intellectual property (VIP) product to support the preliminary 40/100 Gigabit(Gb) specification from the IEEE Ethernet Task Force and delivery to current networking and communication customers for use in deploying next-generation Ethernet products. The preliminary specification, which sends Ethernet frames at 40 and 100 gigabits per second, enables developers to take advantage of the increased bandwidth for advanced computing, virtualization, video on demand, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Network-Attached Storage (NAS), VoIP and video surveillance applications. Denali's PureSpec-Ethernet VIP product provides a comprehensive coverage of the specification and can be integrated into any verification methodology, thus accelerating the pre-silicon design and verification of a variety of Ethernet devices and systems. Denali will be demonstrating its high-quality PureSpec solution for 40/100Gb Ethernet (GbE) design in Booth #1 at the Ethernet Technology Summit in San Jose, California, on February 24-5, 2010.
"Our collection of Ethernet VIP offerings have expanded to include support for 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s speeds, providing a further incentive to designers that were waiting on the sidelines for the maturation of the P802.3ba specification and ecosystem," states Sanjiv Kumar, director, Verification Products at Denali Software. "Our comprehensive verification platform, experience, and support provide the optimal solution for device and system designers aiming to leverage the increased bandwidth features within the new protocol and develop advanced Ethernet marketplace offerings."
Denali's PureSpec VIP software for the preliminary IEEE P802.3ba specification supports all aspects of the specification including block distribution, lane reordering, alignment insertion, alignment removal, alignment lock per lane, block synchronization per lane, lane deskew, auto-negotiation, as well as the optional sub-layer forward error correction (FEC).
