Munich-based design services company joins the Mentor Graphics QuestaTM Vanguard Partnership program
August 1, 2013, MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--frobas GmbH, a solution provider for implementation and verification flows in chip design, today announced that they have joined the Mentor Graphics Questa Vanguard Partnership (QVP) program. By joining the QVP program frobas adopts the advanced verification flow based on Mentor Graphics’ Questa functional verification platform. The combination of frobas services with access to the Questa tool-set makes a great combination to successfully provide solutions to mutual customers to address their pressing functional verification project needs.
frobas works closely with design & verification departments in different engagement models and focuses on RTL design and functional verification based on SystemVerilog and open source methodologies like UVM (Universal Verification Methodology) and OVM.
The frobas functional verification teams have strong knowledge and expertise in VHDL, Verilog and SystemVerilog – as well as in the testbench area of functional verification. Such expertise increases efficiency in the bug finding process driving higher coverage rates of verified RTL code. Understanding hardware constraints as well as providing good software skills to the verification process will result in high quality chips. The frobas team engagement model delivers high quality and structured expert advice and methodology guidance.
“The important cooperation with Mentor as part of the Questa Vanguard Partnership program allows us to engage deeper in important methodology and verification flow projects with our strategic mutual customers, where we support the implementation of UVM based solutions in combination with the Questa Functional Verification Platform,” said Dieter Rudolf, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing at frobas. “Our support covers new applications of UVM like UVM Analog/Mixed Signal, Firmware verification with UVM or UVM with Matlab integration.”
“Mentor Graphics has a long-standing tradition to foster win-win partnerships in functional verification that offer mutual customers significant benefit,” said Dennis Brophy, director of strategic business development, Mentor Graphics Corporation. “The Questa Vanguard Partnership program is an industry recognized leading eco-system to partner in all aspects of advanced functional verification.
