NextOp BugScope Makes DeepChip DAC Report Top 5 for Second Year

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — NextOp Software, Inc. today announced that its BugScope Assertion Synthesis product was selected by Design Automation Conference (DAC) attendees as a top 5 pick in DeepChip's annual DAC Report. BugScope being tied for the DAC 2011 report #2 pick follows it being chosen as the DAC 2010 report #1 pick.

BugScope is a full-chip assertion synthesis product that leverages design and testbench information to automatically generate assertions and functional coverage properties for progressive and targeted verification of complex designs.

According to one review, "BugScope takes an existing regression suite and test bench, and automatically generates insightful assertions ... This would offload some of the DV team's work, and lower the barrier to broader adoption of an assertion-based verification methodology."

DeepChip.com is an online forum where semiconductor chip designers contribute data-intensive papers and articles of first-hand evaluations and production benchmarks of commercial EDA tools. The DeepChip DAC report is an annual survey that started in the 1990's.

"This is the second year running that NextOp has made the Top 5 in the DeepChip DAC report," said John Cooley, DeepChip moderator. "Engineers like that BugScope works within their existing tool flow to find a design's mistakes.  That's so much easier to use than something that requires an invasive messy methodology change."
