Driven by the large NRE and TTM pressures of consumer electronics, it’s vital that an ASIC is right first time. This has resulted in the task of verification closure becoming critical for success of the project and in many cases the company. For this reason new methods to improve overall coverage and efficiency are being adopted by leading ASIC project teams.
ALINT-PRO is a design rule checking (DRC) tool. It uses rule files (‘policies’) to check that a design’s RTL adheres to a defined RTL coding style. It decreases development time dramatically by identifying design issues early in the development schedule.
Riviera-PRO addresses the verification requirements of engineers targeting large gate-count FPGAs, ASICs and System-on-Chip devices. It gives engineers the ultimate testbench in terms of productivity, reusability and automation; all by combining a high-performance simulation engine with advanced debugging capabilities (at different levels of abstraction).
HES-DVM is a fully automated verification and validation system for SoC ASIC designs of 200M+ ASIC gates. Aldec’s FPGA Hardware Emulation Solution is based on the latest Xilinx Virtex-7 devices and is capable of simulation acceleration, and SCE-MI transaction co-emulation.
HES-7 provides SoC and ASIC verification and validation teams with a scalable and high-quality FPGA-based ASIC prototyping solution. Each HES-7 board with dual Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T has 4million FPGA logic cells (or up to 24million ASIC gates of capacity) not including the DSP and memory resources.
StarVision PRO is an RTL-, gate- and SPICE-level integrated debugging and visualisation tool. It has been developed to help electronics engineers cope with the increasing use of building blocks in SoC designs, by allowing them to work at different design levels of abstraction (RTL, gate, transistor, analogue and parasitics) as well as with different design languages and netlist formats.
GateVision PRO is a graphical gate-level netlist analyser and netlist viewer. It provides designers working on even the largest ICs and SoCs with intuitive design navigation, netlist viewing, waveform viewing, logic cone extraction, interactive logic cone viewing for netlist debugging and design documentation.
SpiceVision PRO takes SPICE netlists and models and generates clean, easy-to-read transistor-level schematics, circuit fragments and design documentation in order to accelerate circuit design, circuit debugging and circuit optimisation.
360 DV-INSPECT increases the productivity of existing design and verification flows by adding push-button formal analysis; which can start as soon as the design under test (DUT) has been compiled, and independently of testbenches. In this way, critical bugs can be found much earlier than with a purely simulation-based flow.
360 DV-Verify is a unified coverage-driven assertion-based verification solution. The combination of a fully functional, high-performance formal property analyser with a unique assertion coverage evaluator eliminates the guesswork from quality assertion generation.
The Sigasi Studio platform was developed specifically to make HDL design easier and more efficient. It is based on the Eclipse platform and brings the same kind of real-time code checking assistance that software engineers have enjoyed for years firmly into the hardware arena.
