Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season filled with happy memories, good food, and presents from your wish list! At Real Intent, we welcomed two beautiful babies into our extended family during the holidays: Ryan Ayden Eram and Ebba Anthony Patterson! What better presents to keep us all motivated to work hard to improve the lives for our children!
As a new year present to the industry and our loyal customers, Real Intent announced the release of Meridian CDC version 4.0 on January 11. This release incorporates numerous enhancements and speedups. We will be covering many of the features in more detail in later blogs, but here are a couple of highlights:
- Real Intent’s Meridian CDC product has been the performance and capacity leader for some time now and the 4.0 release builds on the leadership with significant additional performance and capacity improvements (up to 5X) in structural analysis, design upload and GUI debug. Meridian CDC 4.0 makes full chip CDC verification on 100+M gate SoC designs a reality and enables design managers to enforce full-chip CDC verification as a first-order sign-off requirement.
- Meridian CDC 4.0 makes it much easier and faster to setup the design environment (clock, reset, mode select, stable value, input and output domains through SDC translation and automatic design analysis) so that the time to the first useful CDC analysis is minimized. Our continuous efforts in this regard are testament to our customer-centric perspective. We truly believe that in addition basing our products on strong technology foundations, we must also ensure that we do our utmost to make our products the most usable.
Our existing customers are already benefiting from the speedup and added functionality in 4.0. Meridian CDC is the flagship product at Real Intent, and we have a clear focus and devote significant resources to keep it so. The team is already onto the next release target with even more exciting features and improvements to come.
As noted by Prakash Narain, CEO of Real Intent, “Meridian CDC 4.0 release represents a milestone in the industry for delivering a CDC verification solution that can be used to achieve complete CDC sign-off for large and complex SoC designs from RTL to gate.”
