MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Dec. 14, 2010 – Jasper Design Automation, provider of advanced formal technology solutions, today introduced Intelligent Proof Kits for accelerated certification of advanced SoC interconnect protocols. Jasper Intelligent Proof Kits encapsulate critical behaviors for popular protocols such as ARM’s AMBA, letting users quickly configure designs to the standard or adapt them to their own custom configuration. Intelligent Proof Kits are optimized for high-level verification with Jasper’s ActiveDesign™ and JasperGold® formal verification, and designers benefit from these kits especially in combination with Jasper’s unique Visualize technology.
“The next evolutionary step for Proof Kits is to encompass more intelligence, more plug-and-play functionality, more automation and more flexibility,” said Lawrence Loh, Jasper Vice President of Worldwide Applications Engineering. “We work very closely with our partners to ensure Jasper’s Intelligent Proof Kits match the protocol specs precisely. In addition, Jasper Proof Kits are easily comprehensible by users, so they can be adapted for proprietary extensions to standard protocols.”
Users can deploy Intelligent Proof Kits from early in the design cycle, all the way through verification. Automated features allow for rapid integration into the design. Users can visualize selected properties and analyze timing diagrams to understand property behaviors, and cross-reference to the specifications through ActiveDesign, and the design protocol properties can then be seamlessly proven in JasperGold formal verification.
Jasper Intelligent Proof Kits ship unencrypted with original source code to facilitate user customization and insights into the protocols themselves. Jasper is initially rolling out Intelligent Proof Kits for AMBA 3 and AMBA 4, followed closely by DFI, DDR and LPDDR versions.
