Hitachi Selects Synopsys' Discovery Verification IP for ARM AMBA Interconnect for Verification of its Storage Systems

Performance, Intelligent Debug and Advanced Coverage Features Led to Selection of Next-Generation VIP

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Sept. 19, 2012 --
( PRNewswire) Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP used in the design, verification and manufacture of electronic components and systems, today announced that the storage solutions division of Hitachi, Ltd. has selected Synopsys' Discovery Verification IP (VIP) for the ARM AMBA AXI3 protocol for verification of Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform. Enabled by Synopsys' next-generation VIPER architecture, Discovery VIP demonstrated a performance advantage over other VIP, as well as delivered protocol-aware debug capabilities and advanced built-in coverage features, which have accelerated Hitachi's Storage Systems verification closure process.

"Our advanced storage technologies include various advanced system-on-chips (SoCs) that require complex verification environments where we utilize critical VIP to speed up the verification process," said Yuji Takei, department manager, Storage Integration Engineering, IT Platform R & D Management Division, Information & Telecommunication Systems Company, Hitachi, Ltd. "After a comprehensive evaluation, we selected Synopsys' Discovery VIP for the AMBA AXI3 protocol for verification of our advanced SoCs. We were impressed by its speed advantage and memory efficiency compared to other VIP, as well as by Synopsys' Protocol Analyzer technology and broad coverage features."

The Discovery VIP, based on Synopsys' next-generation VIPER architecture and implemented in 100 percent SystemVerilog, offers enhanced VIP performance, configurability, portability, debug, coverage and extensibility. Discovery VIP supports Synopsys' Protocol Analyzer, a protocol-centric debug environment with intelligent visibility into the VIP source code. These capabilities substantially increase user productivity for one of the most difficult and time-consuming aspects of functional verification.

"Since its launch earlier this year, Discovery VIP has seen strong marketplace momentum," said Manoj Gandhi, senior vice president and general manager of the Synopsys Verification Group. "With VIP becoming increasingly more vital to SoC verification, we continue to provide leading VIP technology to help design teams like the storage solutions business of Hitachi, Ltd. to manage tight verification schedules required for their advanced storage SoCs."
