Open Verification Methodology Helps KPIT Cummins Boost Productivity, Shorten Turnaround Time

BANGALORE, INDIA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 31, 2008 -- Cadence Design Systems (I) Pvt Ltd., a subsidiary of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global electronic-design innovation, today announced that KPIT Cummins Infosystems Ltd. has successfully used the class-based Open Verification Methodology (OVM) to develop controller area network (CAN) verification IP for the automotive market. The OVM helped KPIT Cummins improve productivity and overall quality by identifying bugs within a few weeks of adoption, including some deeply embedded functional bugs.

"The OVM provides a robust methodology that is easy to implement and allows teams to ramp up quickly," said Praveen Acharya, vice president, Semiconductor Solutions, KPIT Cummins Infosystems Ltd. "In addition, Cadence worked closely with us throughout the development cycle to ensure that we met our timelines and productivity goals."

"In a relatively short period of time the OVM has raised the bar when it comes to verification methodology and IP integration," said Michal Siwinski, product marketing group director for the Enterprise Verification Group, Cadence Design Systems. "The open source methodology allows leaders in the automotive market like KPIT Cummins to quickly take advantage of advanced verification features to directly address tight schedule demands and monitor overall investment."

Open Verification Methodology

The Open Verification Methodology, based on IEEE Std. 1800™-2005 SystemVerilog standard, is the first open, language-interoperable, SystemVerilog verification methodology in the industry. It provides a methodology and accompanying library that allow users to create modular, reusable verification environments in which components communicate with each other via standard transaction-level modeling interfaces. It also enables intra- and inter-company reuse through a common methodology and classes for virtual sequences and block-to-system reuse, and full integration with other languages commonly used in production flows.
