HSINCHU, Taiwan — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 31, 2011 — SpringSoft, Inc., a global supplier of specialized IC design software, is pleased to announce that its Verdi™ Power-aware Debug Module has been named winner of the 2011 DesignVision Award, an annual program sponsored by The EE Times Group of UBM Electronics, a division of United Business Media LLC (“UBM”) . This year’s award presentation will take place on February 1, 2011 in conjunction with the DesignCon 2011 Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
DesignVision Awards honor the achievements of the most innovative semiconductor companies, the most prominent visionaries, and the most successful design tools in the industry. An impressive array of products in eight categories were judged by UBM based on market vision, originality in bringing a new approach to meeting market needs, and quality of implementation. SpringSoft’s Verdi product was selected as the winner among finalists in the system modeling and simulation tools category: http://designcon.techinsightsevents.com/designvision_awards.
Introduced to the market in February 2010, the Verdi Power-aware Debug Module simplifies the verification of low power system-on-chip (SoC) designs. It accelerates comprehension of power intent and automates the visualization, tracing, and analysis of power-related design behaviors. The unique integration of power format standards and power-aware debug automation enables engineers to save valuable verification cycles for designs with multiple power domains, varying power modes, and numerous power transitions. A detailed technical paper describing the capabilities and benefits of the Verdi power-aware debug methodology is available on the SpringSoft web site at: www.springsoft.com/whitepapers/power-aware-debug.
“SpringSoft is truly honored to receive the DesignVision award. We are especially gratified because it recognizes the value of understanding customer requirements and delivering differentiated products and specialized automation technologies to help them meet their market needs,” said Martin Lu, CEO and chairman of SpringSoft. “These principles are the foundation of our development strategy, and the driving force behind our Verdi R&D team’s focus on bridging the power verification gap SoC developers face today with a universal power-aware debug platform that makes it easier to resolve complex power issues at the early register transfer level of design.”
The Verdi Automated Debug System is SpringSoft’s flagship product for advanced debug. It cuts debug time in half by automating the process of comprehending how complex IC and SoC designs work, particularly unfamiliar legacy design elements or third-party intellectual property. The full-featured system automates behavior tracing over time with its unique analysis engines, provides a powerful set of design views to visualize and help analyze cause-and-effect relationships, and uses patented techniques to reveal the functional operation and interaction between the design, assertions and system testbench.
