Closing the Verification Gap.


HP loaned me a brand-spanking new HP xw8600 workstation loaded with dual 64-bit Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors, 4GB of RAM, a high-end NVIDIA Quadro FX4600 video accelerator, a 320 GB of hard drive, and equipped with an MS Windows XP operating system. I booted up the machine and after being surprised by the lack of any noise --- this is the quietest machine I’ve ever used --- I began my search for a test case that would help me quantify the buzz.

Mentor Graphics Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2008 Results Mentor Graphics announced fiscal 2008 fourth quarter revenue of $284.8 million, and annual revenue of $879.7 million. On a GAAP basis, fiscal 2008 fourth quarter earnings per share were $.39 and $.32 for the full year. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share for fiscal 2008 fourth quarter were $.72, and $1.00 for the full year.
"The company executed well in fiscal 2008, and we are positioned to continue to outperform the market in fiscal 2009," said Gregory K. Hinckley, president of Mentor Graphics. "Additionally, we have tightened our focus on cost controls, and have taken a number of actions, including shuttering our IP division, to provide a more competitive cost basis going forward."

Gauda, Inc. Announces Breakthrough for Accelerating OPC and Verification in 45nm and 32nm Technology Nodes Gauda, Inc. announced today that it has demonstrated a breakthrough technology that can accelerate OPC (optical proximity correction) and OPV (optimal proximity verification) up to 200 times faster than traditional solutions, running on today's desktop computers. Gauda achieves this acceleration without any specialized hardware or FPGAs, but by developing a new breed of algorithms utilizing CPUs and GPUs (graphical processing units) that are traditionally used for gaming. With Gauda technology and approximately 10 all-commodity desktop computers, a large 45nm full-chip layout can be decorated overnight. Similarly, a single desktop computer is sufficient to complete verification overnight.

  • Closing the Verification Gap. March 10, 2008
    Reviewed by 'Tao Chen'

    It is a great article about verification. Finally, I can really say executives at big EDA companies understand the issues. The article addresses reusability across different designs and one design with different representations. Like Java, "write once and run everywhere" is the key factor that increases productivities.
    However, are the technologies really new? The answer is no. We (www.tarek.com) have been addressed those issues since 2004.
