GateRocket Wins 2007 Top Products Honors in EDN, Electronic Design Magazines

BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GateRocket’s RocketDrive™ made the 2007 top products lists in both EDN and Electronic Design magazines. EDN announced its Top 100 products in the Dec. 14 issue (, and Electronic Design highlighted RocketDrive in its “Best Electronic Design” yearend special on Dec. 3 ( The innovative RocketDrive was launched in April 2007.

“It’s a thrill to be recognized along with some of the industry’s great innovators by the leading electronics journals,” said Dave Orecchio, GateRocket president and CEO. “Many thanks to the editors for this great honor.”

In 2008 there will be nearly 95,000 new FPGA design projects according to Gartner/Dataquest, 32 times that of ASICs. While verification and debug of an FPGA is as challenging as any modern ASIC design, until RocketDrive there was no practical and economical solution to this daunting verification and debug problem.

The RocketDrive Device Native™ verification and debug solution is powered by the speed of hardware with the accuracy of the true chip behavior. An industry first, RocketDrive offers the ability to exhaustively validate and test an FPGA design before committing to production, enabling shorter product development times, higher product quality and improved ability to meet or exceed the requirements of today’s demanding marketplace.

GateRocket’s solution allows the verification engineer to place any portions or all of the FPGA design into the RocketDrive and automatically integrates it into their existing simulation environment. This allows the FPGA to be used natively to (1) speed verification by replacing FPGA models with actual hardware; (2) investigate hardware bugs and test alternatives; and (3) run application level software against a Device Native representation of the design.

About GateRocket: GateRocket, Inc., located in Bedford, Mass., offers the Electronic Design Automation industry’s first Device Native verification solution for advanced FPGA semiconductor devices to the global electronics marketplace. The RocketDrive enables companies to verify designs faster and with higher quality. See GateRocket on-line at to learn more, and visit the company’s FPGA verification Blog at
