StarFive Adopts Valtrix STING for Verification of Next-generation RISC-V Processors

BANGALORE, India, June 22, 2021 — (PRNewswire) — Valtrix Systems, provider of design verification products for building functionally correct CPU and system-on-chip implementations, announced today that StarFive, a leading provider of RISC-V processors, platforms and solutions in China, has licensed STING for verification of the next generation of RISC-V processors.

STING, a design verification product from Valtrix, uses software-driven methodology to check the functional correctness and architectural compliance of RISC-V implementations. The product also consists of a RISC-V architecture verification suite and stimulus programming framework to provide the engineering teams an easy ramp into verification readiness and a platform to extend the base stimulus by writing custom tests.

StarFive's CTO, Morton Yu, said: "We are delighted to work with Valtrix Systems. Its design verification tool STING features a highly flexible stimulus development framework and a large library of test stimulus. These add a new level of testing before the release of our next-generation processor design. StarFive has always looked to contribute to a more complete RISC-V processor ecosystem and we look forward to deepening our collaboration with Valtrix in delivering more powerful RISC-V technology."

"The open-source and modular RISC-V architecture allows CPU developers to innovate and customize their offerings to meet the application needs. Verification of custom implementations can be challenging and it needs a versatile solution which can adapt according to the requirements of the design configuration," said Shubhodeep Roy Choudhury, CEO of Valtrix. "STING's well-proven verification methodology has been deployed and used successfully by multiple RISC-V developers and we are proud to partner with StarFive and help them in their endeavor of developing advanced RISC-V implementations," he added.
