High standard of silicon quality key to Mellanox's decision to adopt Certitude
During the Certitude evaluation, Mellanox established that Certitude was able to smoothly integrate into its most complex verification environments and deliver valuable and easy-to-analyze results.
"Mellanox has put product reliability at the forefront of its value proposition," said Certess CEO Michel Courtoy. "Helping chip designers build quality into their SoCs and IP blocks through better verification is the core of Certess' offer. So it was a natural fit that Mellanox use Certitude to improve the quality of its verification."
Functional qualification technology delivered by Certess assists SoC and IP design teams in two critical areas: first, given that the resources required by the functional verification process very often exceed those of design, and second, that since functional logic errors are still the largest cause of silicon re-spins, design teams need a set of dedicated tools and methodologies that automate parts of the process and improve verification quality.
Courtoy added that Certitude is already adopted by three of the top five global semiconductor companies and is deployed by more than 50 design teams throughout the world.
Certess, Inc. is the only electronic design automation company providing functional qualification products for companies that create and integrate complex design blocks for systems on a chip (SoCs) or intellectual property (IP).The company's technology provides design and verification engineers with an objective way to evaluate and improve the completeness of the verification environment, resulting in a shorter and more predictable process to integrate SoC designs and ensure high quality designs. The company is headquartered in Campbell, CA. For additional information, see www.certess.com.
