Innovative verification technology startup to develop verification IP and offer services based on the OpenVera hardware verification language
PARIS, France, April 15, 2002 - Emulation and Verification Engineering (EVE), SARL, a French EDA startup specializing in the creation of advanced verification products and provider of engineering services, today announced it has joined Synopsys' OpenVera™ Catalyst Program. As a member of the OpenVera Catalyst Program, EVE will create and commercialize OpenVera verification intellectual property (IP) to accelerate the development of complete verification suites to enhance customers' verification productivity.
Launched by Synopsys in September 2001, the OpenVera Catalyst Program creates a broad network of companies with expert tool and methodology knowledge in Synopsys' leading verification solutions, such as Synopsys' VERA® testbench solution, VCS Verilog™ simulator and Scirocco™ VHDL simulator.
" With the verification gap widening further as design complexity increases, we elected to join the OpenVera Catalyst Program to help customers meet their system-on-chip (SoC) verification challenges via proven verification methodologies and tools, " said Luc Burgun, CEO and president of EVE. " We will provide expert services on VERA methodology for OpenVera users and develop high quality, reusable OpenVera verification IP solutions. "
" Verification engineers are continually striving to improve overall verification and testbench productivity, " said Jim Watts, OpenVera program manager at Synopsys, Inc. " Synopsys' OpenVera Catalyst Program helps address those needs by enabling verification experts to develop state-of-the-art OpenVera-based verification methodologies for end customers. In addition to offering OpenVera verification IP, EVE will provide verification services which complement Synopsys' existing offerings. "
OpenVera is an open source hardware verification language developed specifically to meet the unique requirements of functional verification. The language enables users to describe the target application environment, including complex protocols and data objects, at a high level of abstraction, which dramatically increases productivity, readability and reusability. The latest OpenVera developments will be featured at the ninth semiannual Synopsys EDA Interoperability DevelopersÕ Forum in Sunnyvale, CA on Tuesday, April 16, 2002.
