The Most Advanced Verification Solution for Block and Chip Level Verification Selected to Resolve Development Bottlenecks>
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nov. 1, 2004 -- Verisity Ltd. (Nasdaq:VRST), the leading provider of Verification Process Automation (VPA) solutions, announced that Siemens Automation and Drives will rely on SpeXsim(TM) to automate verification activities at the block and chip level.
SpeXsim combines the proven testbench automation and overall environment development capabilities of Specman Elite(TM) with a mature single kernel simulator to deliver the most advanced verification solution for block and chip level verification. "Given the intense time-to-market pressures of the IC business, we felt we needed to streamline and integrate our verification processes," said Dr. Andreas Dieckmann, Verification Manager of Siemens A&D's Industrial Automation Systems Division.
SpeXsim also takes advantage of Verisity's patented ReConfigurable Computing (RCC), an event-based environment that allows for a direct path from simulation to full in-circuit emulation and HW/SW co-verification. The solution provides a complete environment to support the highest performance event-based simulation of standard HDLs.
"Verisity demonstrated a tightly integrated package of proven testbench automation and mature mixed-language simulation," said Dieckmann. "The product's extensive feature set, multi-language support for EDA standards, single kernel integration, one-of-a-kind functional coverage analysis, and of course our excellent relationship, gives our team a lot of confidence going forward," he said.
The Industrial Automation Systems Division of Siemens A&D plans to incorporate SpeXsim into its design and test flow, and will take advantage of the tight integration between the high-speed hardware engines for acceleration, emulation, and hardware-software co-verification. "Verisity is extremely pleased to have become a strategic part of Siemens' design plans," said Michael Lerchenmueller, Area Director Central Europe of Verisity. "Our Verification Process Automation (VPA) solutions have been very well received by the industry, and adding a distinguished global leader like Siemens is an extremely strong endorsement."
