VaST Systems Technology at DAC 2006

Company will unveil CoMET 6.0, announce new technology, host a panel on ESL, and give a tutorial on using virtual system prototypes to optimize SoC architectures

SUNNYVALE, California, May 24, 2006--VaST Systems Technology Corporation-powering embedded design innovation- is to unveil at DAC 2006 a new systems engineering environment for the design and optimization of systems on a chip (SoCs), including architecture design and optimization, and the concurrent design and development of hardware and software. The new release, which will run on both Windows and Linux, adds substantial new functionality and represents VaST's sixth generation of its ESL tool.

The company also will sponsor a luncheon panel entitled "Lessons from the trenches: Real-world ESL project experiences--are the advantages worth the cost and effort?" on Wednesday, July 26th in rooms 228-230 from noon until 2:00pm. Gary Smith, senior EDA analyst with Gartner/Dataquest, will moderate the panel, with panelists discussing implementation methods, tools and ROI; contrasting the use of ESL to prior results using traditional EDA methods; and debating the future direction of ESL. Please contact Rosario Monge at Email Contact if you are interested in attending.

On Monday, July 24th, from 2:00-5:00pm in Room 309, VaST will give a tutorial on "Using Virtual System Prototypes to Optimize Architectures for Low Power and Other Key Attributes."

Customers use the VaST CoMET and METeor tools together with virtual processor, bus and peripheral models to develop virtual system prototypes during the architecture definition, exploration and optimization phase of the embedded systems design process. These become the actual platforms--the golden reference models--for developing software and for driving hardware design. The high performance, timing accuracy, high observability and controllability of virtual system prototypes, in comparison with silicon, make them indispensable in an efficient engineering process.

Stay tuned for more in-depth information as we get closer to DAC.

About VaST
VaST Systems Technology Corporation tools and models enable the creation of a virtual system prototype-a cycle-accurate software model of a system that operates at near real-time speeds under actual software loads. Solutions from VaST are used for architecture analysis and optimization and for the concurrent development of hardware and software. VaST virtual system prototypes dramatically improve time to market and quality while reducing development costs and risk.

Current customers include worldwide leaders in semiconductors, automotive electronics, wireless devices, and consumer electronics. VaST is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California with sales and support offices worldwide. For more information, visit
