ARM gets Cadence’s Verification Kit

By : |July 4, 2006 0



NEW DELHI: Cadence Design Systems Inc. and ARM today announced the Cadence
Functional Verification Kit for ARM technology, presenting design teams with a
low-risk path to verification closure when verifying ARM processor-based
designs.

The kit covers the verification process from architectural verification to
system validation for both hardware and software — all tied together with
Cadence’s proven Incisive Plan-to-Closure Methodology. The result is improved
team productivity, higher design quality and greater predictability in the
verification process for designers in segments such as wireless and digital
personal entertainment.

According to Mike Inglis, executive vice president of Marketing, ARM, “ARM and
Cadence continue to deliver solutions that provide measurable value to our
mutual customers. This kit collaboration, using Cadence’s Plan-to-Closure
Methodology and ARM-technology-certified AMBA verification IP, reinforces our
commitment to accelerate verification closure for producing industry-leading ARM
processor-based designs.”

This Cadence Kit contains block, chip, and system-level flows and verification
methodology tailored for ARM processor-based designs using the Cadence Incisive
platform, Cadence applicability consulting, an ARM926 processor-based
representative design to demonstrate the methodologies, and a full suite of ARM
technology-certified AMBA methodology-based verification IP (VIP). The VIP
includes reusable verification plans, AMBA compliance metrics, advanced
testbenches, formal and accelerated protocol assertions, accelerated transactors,
cycle-callable ARM processor models, and ARM emulation LogicTiles.

Moshe Gavrielov, executive vice president and general manager of the Cadence
Verification Division, said, “The Cadence Functional Verification Kit for ARM
offers significant enhancements for the challenging task of verifying complex
ARM processor-based designs. Design and verification teams now have at their
disposal a powerful set of technologies, supported by a proven methodology, to
help them speed their designs to high-quality silicon.”

The Cadence Functional Verification Kit for ARM further strengthens the Cadence
Kits approach to solving the complex design challenges of electronics.
