TransEDA Announces Simulation Edge Suite for Faster Design Verification At 50 Percent Savings
LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 20, 2001-- TransEDA®, the leader in ready-to-use verification solutions, today announced its Simulation Edge(TM) verification suite, offering FPGA, ASIC and SoC designers faster time-to-market at half the price, with TransEDA's integrated design verification solutions.
The Simulation Edge suite is ready-to-use with existing simulation environments and verification flows to dramatically speed the functional verification process. The suite offers a configurable HDL checker, coverage analysis, and test suite analysis in one bundle with a common interface. At up to 50 percent off the regular list price for the combined set of tools, designers can speed time-to-market while keeping tool costs and vendor count to the absolute minimum.
``TransEDA's Simulation Edge suite is an integrated verification solution at a great bundled price,'' said Tom Borgstrom, vice president of marketing at TransEDA. ``The Simulation Edge suite can be used by all RTL designers to achieve a time-to-market edge by reducing the simulation iterations needed for functional closure. It is also painless to install, integrate, learn and use so designers can get up and running quickly. Add to this the time saved by working with a single vendor for a variety of verification tools, and designers really get an edge.''
Simulation Edge Suite - An Integrated, Ready-to-Use Solution
The Simulation Edge verification suite offers a powerful combination of three best-in-class verification tools that work seamlessly together and are easily integrated into existing RTL design flows:
- VN-Check(TM) Configurable HDL Checker: With built-in rule sets and easily configured rules, VN-Check identifies bugs before simulation when it is easiest to fix them, cutting time and effort spent on simulation.
- VN-Cover(TM) Coverage Analysis: The leading Verilog, VHDL and dual-language coverage solution, VN-Cover enables designers to identify and focus test development effort on the areas of a design that have yet to be fully simulated, slashing the number of simulation iterations required.
- VN-Optimize(TM) Test Suite Analysis: Working seamlessly with VN-Cover coverage results, VN-Optimize analyzes test sets from large regression suites and identifies the smallest set of tests that will meet verification goals, dramatically reducing the time and resource requirements for regression testing.
The tools in the Simulation Edge suite are part of TransEDA's Verification Navigator integrated design verification environment. Verification Navigator provides tools that enable IC designers to manage the verification process and shorten verification time. In addition to VN-Check, VN-Cover and VN-Optimize, Verification Navigator includes VN-Control(TM) Application Specific Test Automation.
Verification Navigator supports all leading Verilog, VHDL and dual-language simulators and is available on the Solaris, HPUX, AIX, Linux, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 platforms.
Pricing and Availability
The Simulation Edge verification suite, featuring VN-Check, VN-Cover, and VN-Optimize, is available now through December 31, 2001, in Verilog, VHDL, language neutral, and dual language configurations. Pricing starts at $30,000 for a perpetual license, a 50 percent savings off list price for the combined tools. Subscription-based pricing is also available.
