"We are extremely pleased to be nominated as a finalist in EDN's Innovation competition," said Michel Courtoy, CEO of Certess. "Our nomination for Certitude validates Certess' technology leadership in answering the market's need for a solution that objectively measures the quality of a verification environment."
Functional qualification tackles the most formidable problem in functional verification today: the absence of objective quality assurance in SoCs and IP blocks. Certitude provides a direct measure of the quality of the verification environment to find functional errors, by identifying missing tests or checkers based on whether injected errors are activated, propagated and detected.
During the month of February, EDN's worldwide audience of electronics engineers and engineering managers will use an online ballot to select the ultimate winners from among the finalists. EDN's editorial staff and Editorial Advisory Board also take part in determining the final winners. We encourage you to visit www.EDN.com/innovation18 to vote. Winners will be announced at a dinner and awards ceremony on April 14, 2008 in San Jose, CA.
