Kathryn Kranen- Jasper Design Automation

For example we work with companies like Sony to allow them to verify blocks that are going to be used for they call platform based design, a single block by a designer maybe on six different products in the beginning and then reused modified for other products. With simulation you can only verify your design for one mode, for one specific configuration because you barely have time to do that, What Sony is doing is pre-verfying these blocks for the entire spectrum of operating configurations so that they can now reuse them without re-verifying them, If they modify these blocks they can plug and play these HLRs. We are not implementation specific. Talk about productivity.
