July 4th , 2011 - HDL Design House, a company that offers design and verification services as well as soft and hard IP cores (digital and analog), today announced that it has signed a strategic agreement with Cadence Design Systems, a leader in global electronic design innovation, to join the Cadence IP Alliance program.
This agreement with Cadence will enable HDL Design House to gain access to Cadence end-to-end Silicon Realization product lines, streamline its design flows for both analog and digital IP cores, and increase operational effectiveness. The move represents a significant milestone in the more than fouryear collaboration between the two companies.
The agreement provides the framework for Cadence and HDL Design House to develop and deploy SoC design and design verification methodologies required to further strengthen HDL Design House´s position as the developer of IP cores and System-on-Chip solutions.
"HDL Design House signed this agreement to make Cadence its strategic and preferred partner for EDA products and technologies since Cadence is the leader in providing the fully integrated, analog and digital flows that HDL Design House requires," said Predrag Markovic, HDL Design House CEO. "It is critical to partner with a leader in EDA who can support our development needs, especially in the area of advanced low-power chip design.. Technology, methodologies and the strong vision that Cadence brings to the relationship will be a tremendous benefit to HDL Design House". The agreement provides HDL Design House with access to the range of Cadence analog/mixed-signal (AMS), unified digital flow, and verification technologies for complete front-to-back-end development and verification.
HDL Design House and Cadence also agreed that HDL Design House will, through development of its own IP cores, provide additional testing and support for the next generation of Cadence market-leading verification IP product line.
