Agnisys and Breker Partner to Generate System-Level Portable Stimulus Sequences

LOWELL, MA and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Agnisys and Breker Verification Systems, Inc., today announced availability of an integrated solution for portable test sequences where sequences from the same description are generated for use across all verification platforms, from early-stage simulation to full-chip validation of silicon in the bring-up lab.

ISequenceSpec™ from Agnisys, provider of a common specification-driven development flow to describe registers and sequences for system-on-chip (SoC) and intellectual property (IP) design, verification, firmware and validation, enables users to describe programming and test sequences of a device once and generate sequences automatically. It provides a straightforward specification format to describe the sequences and generates the code that ensures synchronization between verification to validation. Users describe initialization, configuration and test sequences and ISequenceSpec automatically generates Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) models and firmware sequences usable throughout the design and verification process.

The Trek™ family of products and apps from Breker, the SoC Verification Company, automatically generates multi-threaded test cases that verify SoC designs design more quickly and more thoroughly. These test cases are reusable from IP to full-chip level, and from simulation to silicon, meeting all requirements for the upcoming Accellera standard on Portable Stimulus. Trek products expand the scope of sequences supported by ISequenceSpec from register and memory read and writes to include sequences involving chip I/O ports and sequences that require parallel execution of multiple threads, scheduling, resource management, and randomization of system-level behavior.

"Traditionally, sequences were hand-written and not portable," says Anupam Bakshi, Agnisys' chief executive officer (CEO). "Automatic generation is a major savings in time and effort since sequences do not have to be manually rewritten for each stage in the development process. With this new combined solution, our mutual customers benefit from truly portable sequences."

"Our tools are efficient at generating portable, self-checking, multi-threaded test cases from IP blocks to multi-SoC configurations and from simulation to silicon," remarks Adnan Hamid, CEO of Breker. "The abstract specification enabled by ISequenceSpec provides a library of sequences that we can leverage to provide an industry-leading integrated solution."

Agnisys and Breker will exhibit at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) from Monday, June 6, through Wednesday, June 8, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas. To schedule a private demonstration in the Agnisys Booth (#420), go to: http://bit.ly/202Dgwg. A private meeting in the Breker Booth (#1626) can be scheduled by going to: www.brekersystems.com.

Availability and Pricing

The new, integrated solution is available today from Agnisys or Breker. Local sales representatives should be contacted for details.

Pricing is available upon request.
