NOVAS AND DENALI TEAM TO SPEED DEBUGGING USING MEMORY SUBSYSTEM INFORMATION
Denali integrates MMAV with Debussy, joins Novas' Harmony Program
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 7, 2001--Novas, the leader in debug systems for complex chip designs, and Denali, a world leader in high-performance memory subsystem design and verification, today announced that Denali's Memory Modeler Advanced Verification (MMAV) is now integrated with Novas' Debussy(r) debug system. MMAV is the industry-standard solution for modeling and simulating memory, and the most advanced verification IP for system-level verification and debugging.
With the complexity of today's memories, tracking down bugs in complex systems is difficult and time-consuming. But with the integration of Debussy and MMAV, customers can easily view, edit, and manipulate memory data and memory transactions to quickly locate and isolate system-level bugs. Compatibility between the two companies' products is assured as Denali has joined Novas' Harmony program, through which Novas provides access to Debussy and support for product integration, improving productivity for mutual customers.
"Novas is committed to open systems and partnerships that reduce the cost of using EDA tools for chip design by lowering interoperability costs," said Scott Sandler, president and CEO of Novas. "The integration of Denali's MMAV with Debussy is a great example of how Novas is partnering with leading companies to reduce the cost of the most expensive part of verification, which is the human effort required to understand the design."
"With Debussy and MMAV, designers can synchronize waveform views with data stored in memory," said Kevin Silver, vice president of marketing at Denali. "For any point in time, designers can instantly view the state of memory at that time. They can also see a history of data transactions - all the reads and writes - into and out of any memory location. Moving seamlessly between waveforms and memory information gives designers huge productivity gains in verification and debugging."
Novas established its Harmony program in 1999 to lower the cost of EDA tool interoperability. The Harmony program provides developers of verification and other tools with Debussy licenses, engineering support for integration efforts, and ongoing support for mutual customers. Debussy's open application programming interfaces (APIs) ensure that the widest range of chip design and verification solutions can take advantage of its industry-leading debug capabilities.
