HENDERSON, Nev. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 15, 2015 — Aldec, Inc. delivers new functionality to existing hardware resources and enables unprecedented scalability with the latest release of its hardware emulation solution software, HES-DVM™ 2014.12. The unique emulation solution, which can be used with in-house developed boards or off-the-shelf solutions such as HES-7™ SoC and ASIC prototyping boards, offers a higher speed of emulation and ease of use via System Verilog DPI interface that enables scalability and acceleration of verification process for modern SoC projects.
HES-DVM delivers significant improvements to SCE-MI Function Based emulation flows. Users can now enable hardware emulation into their OVM/UVM simulation flows with new features such as support for DPI-C exported tasks, force signal value or plusargs compilation. Aldec HES emulator in-the-loop also allows reuse of OVM/UVM testbench while the design is accelerated in the emulator.
This release brings also significant speed improvements of OVM/UVM simulation acceleration interfaces by optimizing constant arguments of DPI-C functions and introducing automatic clock rescaling called as SCE-MI Clocks Turbo Mode. With these improvements, FPGA implementations of SCE-MI transactors utilize less chip resources and the entire emulation runs significantly faster.
The latest release of HES-DVM also includes numerous new features and enhancements within the Design Verification Manager (DVM) design setup tool.
