Verisity vManager and Platform LSF Electronics Edition Integration Enables Automated and Simpler Verification, From Executable Plans to Verification Closure
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2004 -- Verisity Ltd. (Nasdaq:VRST), the leading supplier of Verification Process Automation (VPA) solutions, has partnered with Platform Computing, the largest distributed and grid computing software vendor, to deliver a powerful integration between vManager and Platform LSF Electronics Edition. As part of this joint agreement, best-in-class technologies are joined to automate and simplify verification, from executable plans to verification closure, to achieve higher predictability and enhanced quality in chip design at a lower system cost. The combination provides increased productivity and more predictable verification project management as well as sophisticated project and enterprise optimization of grid resources.
