Roseville, MN, May 22, 2014 -- WinterLogic, Inc., the industry leader in fault simulation solutions, today announced the release of Z01X 2.8 with Inspect, a graphic interface tool designed for exploring the quality of a designs test coverage. Leveraging over twenty years of experience in fault simulation technology, Inspect combines a flexible suite of analysis tools with Z01Xs powerful fault simulation platform to provide an advanced environment for investigating fault coverage.
As designs continue to increase in complexity, debug and analysis tools like Inspect represent our continued commitment to advancing fault simulation technology, states Jason Campbell, WinterLogics President. Inspects linked viewers for source code, hierarchies and fault definitions enable quick identification of poorly tested areas in complex designs.
We are really excited about this new capability. Our customers who perform extensive RTL or gate-level fault simulation now have a unique platform to efficiently develop better test vectors. Visualization of faults in the context of surrounding logic provides useful feedback for functional, BIST and diagnostic patterns, says Olivier Bolon, Winterlogics director of Sales and Business Development.
WinterLogics Z01X is the only commercial fault simulator with the capacity and performance to successfully run the largest SoC for wireless, graphics and computing. With its advanced feature set, WinterLogics Z01X is the tool of choice for meeting the most stringent automotive manufacturing and safety standards such as AEC-Q100 and ISO26262. Z01X 2.8 adds not only the Inspect fault analysis tool, but also continued enhancements to SystemVerilog support, 2X RTL simulation performance improvements, and a new TCL scripting interface.
WinterLogic provides fault simulation products that analyze a test suites ability to detect manufacturing defects and design errors. Z01X for Manufacturing Assurance helps companies hit their zero-defect manufacturing target and reduce testing costs by selecting the most effective tests and closing the ATPG coverage gap. Z01X for Verification Assurance uses functional fault simulation to quickly identify untested areas in RTL designs and weaknesses in verification test suites.Â
