EVE's Hardware-Assisted Verification Platform Used in Design of the P.A. Semi PWRficient Processor Family; P.A. Semi Core to Run on ZeBu-XL Platform at In-Stat Fall Processor Forum

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oct. 24, 2005— EVE (Emulation and Verification Engineering) today announced that P.A. Semi has utilized its ZeBu-XL hardware-assisted verification platform in the design of its PWRficient platform processor. P.A. Semi unveiled its new multicore, 64-bit, scalable processor family today in conjunction with demonstrations based on ZeBu-XL during the In-Stat Fall Processor Forum at the Doubletree Hotel here.

Over the last six months, P.A. Semi verified and interactively debugged its high-performance, low-power microprocessor core and system-on-chip (SoC) design using the ZeBu (for Zero Bugs) high-speed, high-capacity emulation platform. Two ZeBu boxes were used concurrently for running different workload and random tests. Developed for large SoC designs, each has 32 Xilinx Virtex-II 8000 field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

"ZeBu is the most impressive hardware-assisted verification platform on the market today," says Tse-Yu Yeh, Director of Architecture and Verification, P.A. Semi. "From our rigorous evaluations and then testing and debug, EVE has built the best hardware-assisted verification solution available."

Adds Lauro Rizzatti, general manager of EVE-USA and vice president of worldwide marketing: "P.A. Semi's designers put us through the paces and we're delighted that they are pleased with the results they got from using ZeBu."
