OneSpin Solutions Delivers First Equivalence Checker Dedicated to FPGA Synthesis Verification

MUNICH, Germany & SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 10, 2007— OneSpin Solutions GmbH, an electronic design automation (EDA) company that provides award-winning formal verification solutions, today announced its stand-alone 360 EC-FPGA equivalence checker - the industry's first sequential equivalence checking solution dedicated to and priced for the FPGA market. It is the only equivalence checker to support all sequential optimizations performed by FPGA synthesis tools. It thus enables designers to verify functionality without disabling the advanced synthesis optimizations vital to achieving functional, performance and cost goals. Formerly an extension of OneSpin's established 360 EC-ASIC equivalence checker, 360 EC-FPGA now is packaged stand-alone and priced for broad application in the FPGA market. OneSpin also has extended 360 EC-FPGA's support to include all Altera Stratix(R) and Cyclone(R) FPGAs, and HardCopy(R); most Xilinx Spartan(TM) and Virtex(TM) products; and the Synplicity(R) Synplify Pro(R) synthesis flow - including gated clock conversion.

Synthesis tool independent, 360 EC-FPGA verifies functional equivalence between the register transfer level (RTL) code and post-synthesis FPGA netlist, and between the post-synthesis netlist and post-place-and-route FPGA netlist. It efficiently proves, without time-consuming simulation, that design functionality is preserved through all implementation phases - detecting errors and mismatches introduced by sophisticated FPGA synthesis optimizations, and dramatically reducing debug time. The solution supports both prototyping and production-part verification.

Peter Feist, president and CEO of OneSpin, said, "The design of complex, highly optimized FPGAs mandates the use of equivalence checking, and designers want an FPGA-specific solution that does not compromise optimizations. We built the 360 EC-FPGA as a stand-alone, tailor-made solution to satisfy that need. Our customers tell us it fits easily into their established FPGA flows and ensures the quality of their designs. Its technological advantages and attractive pricing will help OneSpin capture the lead in this emerging market segment."

Pricing and Availability

The new 360 EC-FPGA solution is available now for Linux 32/64 bit and Solaris 32/64 bit platforms. A one-year, time-based license for either Altera or Xilinx devices ("single vendor license") is priced at U.S. $ 40,800. A full one-year time-based license for both Altera and Xilinx ("full license") is priced at U.S. $ 57,100.
