Verific Licenses HDL Component Software to ProDesign

Verific's HDL parsers enable new ASIC Verification capabilities for ProDesign's CHIPit high-speed ASIC prototyping systems

Alameda, Calif./Munich, March 28, 2006 - Verific Design Automation announced today that it has licensed its hardware description language (HDL) Component Software to ProDesign, a leading supplier of high-speed application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and system-on-chip (SoC) verification platforms.

ProDesign has integrated Verific's C++ source code-based parsers, analyzers and elaborators for Verilog and VHDL with their CHIPit® ASIC prototyping systems where Verific's software is being used as the RTL front end (register transfer level).

"Verific - our first choice when looking for a front-end development partner - offers an exceptional package that includes production-proven, quality software, along with excellent support and service," said Gunnar Scholl, ProDesign's director of Marketing and Business Development. "With the integration of Verific's HDL Component Software, we were able to expand the capabilities of our CHIPit systems especially for the transaction-based verification. This enhanced concept opens new functionalities for pre-silicon system and software verification".

Michiel Ligthart, Verific's chief operating officer, remarked: "ProDesign has a compelling story, and we're delighted to be part of it. ASIC prototyping is a viable verification strategy, due in large measure to ProDesign's tools."
