SoC designers gain high performance and fast turnaround at low cost and reduced risk
ANDOVER, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 9, 2014 — Avery Design Systems and BaySand today announced a cooperative effort to deliver comprehensive IP solutions for BaySand’s breakthrough TeneX configurable System on Chip (SoC) solution based on innovative Metal Configurable Standard Cell (MCSC) technology. The cooperation that spans PCI Express, USB, DDR, and SATA, will allow SOC designers to benefit from a high-performance configurable platform, deploying robust verification models to achieve shorter time-to-market and lower cost.
“Avery is excited to team with BaySand to promote a comprehensive and cohesive design IP and core-to-chip-level verification solution to fully leverage the unparalleled value propositions in NRE and time to market (TTM) of Tenex”, said Chris Browy, vice president of sales and marketing for Avery Design Systems. “Initially Avery VIP will be used to internally validate BaySand’s IP portfolio using our robust models, protocol checking, and compliance testsuites. Tenex customers will benefit by using Avery VIP for their SoC verification based on shared goals and experience built up between Avery and BaySand.”
“As verification might account for significant amount of design development cost and time, BaySand partnered with Avery to enhance the TeneX solution and allow SoC and ASIC engineers to enjoy the advantages of low NRE and short time-to-market,” said Jonathan Park, Executive Vice President and CTO at BaySand. “Avery VIP product suite provides our customers with a robust verification solution that can help reduce design risk and further shorten turnaround time.”
