Broadcom Expands Use of Cadence Verification Computing Platform to Tackle System Realization

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 22, 2011 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that Broadcom Corporation, a global leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, is expanding its use of the Cadence® Verification Computing Platform, Palladium® XP, to help validate its complex system designs before committing them to silicon.

"Our system designs are among the most complex in the industry, and the Cadence technologies -- both emulation and transaction-based acceleration -- provide the user controllability and real-world verification environments we need for system-level integration and early hardware/software system validation," said Neil Kim, executive vice president, Operations and Central Engineering, Broadcom Corporation. "The Palladium XP technology reduces time to market and improves quality."

The Cadence Verification Computing Platform, Palladium XP, was introduced in April 2010 and is the first fully integrated high-performance hardware/software validation platform, unifying simulation, acceleration and emulation into a single verification environment.

Broadcom is expanding its use of Palladium XP into several lines of business after evaluating the Cadence Ethernet, USB, Video and PCI Express SpeedBridge® Adapter technologies.

"System development is complex and requires software and hardware teams to work closely together to meet market window demands," said Michał Siwiński, product marketing group director for System Realization at Cadence. "We are glad to partner with Broadcom and deliver benefits in validating their complex designs more efficiently to shorten the overall time to market with Cadence System Realization technologies."
