Verific Welcomes Tenison as Latest Customer

ALAMEDA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 12, 2006— Verific Design Automation today announced that Tenison Design Automation, a company focused on removing the barriers to ESL adoption, has licensed its hardware description language (HDL) Component Software.

Verific's VHDL parser and static elaborator are utilized as the front end for Tenison's newly announced VTOC VHDL/mixed language product. By licensing Verific's technology, Tenison was able to extend VTOC synthesis quickly to understand the complex structures of VHDL as well as the currently supported Verilog. Tool developers taking advantage of Verific's front end compiler technology are able to get to market earlier with an already proven parsing/elaboration technology.

"We are committed to increasing our customers' profitability through software solutions that accelerate system design," remarks Jeremy Bennett, chief technology office (CTO) of Tenison Design Automation. "Verific's HDL Component Software was instrumental in us being able to more quickly support our customer's needs."

"Tenison is an innovative company providing products to accelerate ESL adoption," adds Michiel Ligthart, chief operating officer (COO) at Verific. "We're pleased to partner with Tenison in its vision and customer needs."
