Verific Joins Cadence Connections Program
Move Enables Access to Software, Support to Develop Validated Interfaces
Verific Design Automation, supplier of de facto standard SystemVerilog and VHDL front-end software to the electronic design automation (EDA) and semiconductor community, announced today that it has become a member of the Cadence Design Systems Connections® program.
Cadence® Connections is a program that enables interoperability between EDA software. As a member of this program, Verific has access to Cadence software and support to ensure SystemVerilog and VHDL interoperability between Cadence products and the EDA tools that incorporate Verific's front ends.
"Teaming with innovative technology companies such as Verific is a key to Cadence delivering on the promise of the EDA360 vision," said Tom Anderson, product marketing group director at Cadence. "We're pleased to welcome Verific to Connections and look forward to working with them on common interpretation of standard languages."
Verific will calibrate its software, the front end to a variety of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and EDA tools for synthesis, simulation, debug, test and verification applications, to the Cadence tool flow. Verific's software is distributed as C++ source code and compiles on all 32- and 64-bit Unix, Linux, and Windows operating systems. Licenses come with support and maintenance.
"Joining the Connections Program is a strategic move for us," added Michiel Ligthart, Verific's chief operating officer. "Interoperability between our SystemVerilog and VHDL front ends and Cadence's tool flow will offer design teams an unobstructed path to implementation and, most important, more accurate designs."
