Virtutech Simics Hybrid Simulation Named EDN Innovation Award Finalist

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 18, 2009— Virtutech®, Inc., the leading provider of virtualized system development (VSD) solutions, today announced that its Simics Hybrid Simulation capability, which leverages the proven Simics® simulator platform, has been named a finalist in the EDA: PCB, FPGA and Mixed-signal/RF ICs category of this year’s EDN Innovation Awards. Instituted in 1990, the Innovation Awards honor the people, products, and technologies that have shaped the semiconductor industry over the past year.

The Virtutech hybrid simulation approach enables engineers to analyze, debug, profile and execute their applications in a fast, TLM-based, functionally accurate model and then switch to the cycle-accurate model when they want to perform precise performance analysis on critical sections of their application. In addition, by incorporating the golden model from a semiconductor vendor such as Freescale, developers have the benefit of using an accurate timing model provided by the source of the SoC instead of a less valid one developed by a third party.

Online voting for EDN’s 19th Annual Innovation Awards runs through February 27, 2009. For a list of all the nominees and to cast a vote please visit http://www.edn.com/info/CA6630810.html?industryid=48661. Winners will be announced at a dinner and awards ceremony on March 30, 2009, in San Jose, CA.
