February, 23 2011-- Austin-based Breker Verification Systems, Inc., an EDA software provider, announced record bookings for 2010. Breker has exceeded revenue expectations through the deployment of its flagship product Trek™, the model-based scenario generator. In the past two years, Breker has established itself as a front-runner in functional verification solutions for complex system-on-ship (SoC) designs.
Through the use of Trek, customers can more efficiently develop scenario models that describe the verification space of the device under test. This model is then used to automatically generate complex tests which include both stimulus and expected results. Because of Trek’s efficiencies, designers can begin testing much earlier – even before RTL is finished – and then expand incrementally to achieve more complete coverage than previously possible.
“We had an outstanding year in 2010,” said Rick Nordin, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Breker. ”Several new customers adopted the Trek generation flow for functional verification which led to the opening of two new support locations in France and India. Plans are also in the works to increase support for US based operations. Our growth is a direct reflection of greater industry need for new techniques and technologies that enhance verification productivity.”
Breker Verification Systems is an EDA company offering a model based test generation tool for functional verification focused on System-on- Chip (SOC) verification with IP-to-SOC reuse and pre-silicon to post-silicon reuse. The strength of the technology lies in providing verification engineers with a simple “algebra” to describe their desired verification search space as they visualize it, using a combination of graphs and graph constraints. The tool generates input stimulus, results checks and coverage closure, creating transactional tests at the IP level and C tests at the SOC level. Visual analytical capabilities include interactive rendering of pre-simulation reachability analysis and post-simulation coverage results. Privately held, Breker was founded in 2003 in Austin, TX. Its corporate headquarters is at 8217 Edgemoor Place, Austin, Texas 78749. Telephone: (512) 415-1199. On the Web at http://www.brekersystems.com
