DAC is only a few short weeks away. At EVE, we’re busy finalizing our demos and presentations, and getting ready to ship our booth to the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

It’s an exciting time for us and we look forward to seeing attendees and fellow exhibitors again this year. Our attention will be focused on why so many companies are turning to EVE for their complex SoC verification needs.

For example, we see increasingly strong demand for our ZeBu SoC emulation, the leading solution for accelerated transaction-based verification. In the last two years, more than 30 design teams adopted the new ZeBu-Server for validating very complex SoCs.

Among them are:

  • Texas Instruments confirmed recently that it used ZeBu-Server to accelerate development of its embedded software for the OMAP 5 platform –– a big deal for us and a huge win for software developers.
  • Fujitsu Microelectronics Solutions Limited in Japan announced last week that it adopted ZeBu and ZEMI-3 transaction-level modeling methodology to use within its integrated algorithmic C verification RTL emulation flow to complete a high-level synthesis design methodology.
  • Konica-Minolta will offer a look at how it uses ZeBu in a User Track scheduled for Thursday, June 7, from 9-10:30 a.m. in Room #303.

Moreover, we just closed our fiscal year with more than $60 million in bookings.


Emulation Evolved, Part 2

Monday, May 7th, 2012

In my previous blog post, I began an exploration of the evolution of emulation. Indeed, over the years emulation has evolved into a mandatory component of the SoC realization process, offering multi-MHz performance, improved time-to-emulation, and simulator-like debugging capabilities—all in a compact, low-power chassis.

But emulation providers like EVE don’t have time to rest on our laurels. The challenges of SoC design and verification are continuously changing, and it’s not enough for us to simply keep pace—we need to account for future developments as well. Accounting for future evolution in emulation requires both scalability and continued innovation.


Emulation Evolved

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

DAC’s coming and, at EVE, we’re thinking about the evolution of emulation, a theme that you’ll hear more about from us. It’s been fascinating to look at how emulation has evolved from high-priced, hard-to-use clunkers introduced in the 1980s to sleek, low-cost hardware-assisted verification solutions that execute at high speeds.

At $1 million per seat, those early emulators were available to only the largest companies doing the most complicated designs. Cost alone prevented widespread deployment, and they quickly became outdated as new process technologies emerged, quashing their practicality and curbing accuracy. The maximum speed was about one MHz, slow even then, and they were roundly criticized for being difficult to set up. The designer’s lament was the excessive time to emulation.
