Verific’s Parser Platform Ensures Integration with SystemVerilog and UVM
ALAMEDA, CALIF. –– July 14, 2015 –– Verific Design Automation, recognized as the leading supplier of hardware description language (HDL) parsers used throughout the semiconductor industry, today announced electronic design automation (EDA) newcomer Vtool has chosen Verific’s parsers for use with its functional verification platform.
Vtool intends to revolutionize integrated circuit (IC) design and verification with an efficient platform that includes all verification elements, from plan formulation through testbench implementation and debug. Verific’s SystemVerilog and VHDL parsers are in use as the front end to Vtool’s Environment Builder and VIP Builder, enabling Vtool to develop its functional verification platform faster and more cost effectively.
Selecting Verific’s Parser Platform also ensured Vtool’s functional verification platform could be integrated with existing SystemVerilog-based universal verification methodology (UVM) and verification intellectual property (VIP) technologies.
“Verific’s reputation is well known throughout the semiconductor and EDA industry, and is well deserved,” remarks Hagai Arbel, Vtool’s chief executive officer. “Its parsers easily integrated with our functional verification platform, saving us time and resources that could be deployed elsewhere. If we had a question, we knew its customer support team was a phone call or email away and always responsive.”
Verific’s Parser Platforms are in production and development use today at companies worldwide, from EDA startups to established Fortune 500 semiconductor vendors. Applications vary from analysis, simulation, formal verification and synthesis to emulation and virtual prototyping, in-circuit debug and design-for-test. Parser Platforms are distributed as C++ source code and compile on all 32- and 64-bit Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems. Its Parser Platforms include support for SystemVerilog, Verilog, VHDL and UPF, and provide C++, Python and Perl APIs.
“Vtool has undertaken a huge but important challenge to revolutionize chip verification,” Michiel Ligthart, Verific’s president and chief operating officer, adds. “It gives us great pleasure to play a role in helping bring efficiency and precision to the verification bottleneck.”
Vtool of Tel Aviv, Israel, provides a disruptive functional verification platform that makes the painstaking functional verification process efficient and precise, thanks to user-friendly automation. Integrating smoothly with existing SystemVerilog UVM and Verification IP
technologies, Vtool’s all-in-one interface lets verification teams focus on the most essential parts, resulting in easier, faster time-to-tapeout. For more information, visit: www.thevtool.com
