Cadence Incisive Verification IP Portfolio Delivers 'All-in-One' Flexibility and Higher Value for SoC Developers

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 23, 2009 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced availability of a new single-license model that grants verification teams access to the extensive Cadence® Incisive® Verification IP (VIP) Portfolio.

The single-license model provides verification teams flexible, cost-effective access to Open Verification Methodology (OVM)-compliant, multi-language VIP for dozens of commonly used protocols.

Under the new model, users purchase a single license to get access to the growing library of metric-driven and assertion-based verification IP from Cadence. This single license can be used to check-out any of the Cadence VIP resources into a user's verification environment and can be reconfigured on a moment-to-moment basis, providing access to new technologies and protocol VIP as they are released. VIP implementation services are available to further speed time to productivity.

"The flexibility of a single multi-language VIP Portfolio that can be used for a variety of protocols and technologies as needed on a daily basis allows SiRF to optimize our verification IP investment," said Mohammed E. Haque, ASIC DV lead at SiRF Technology. "The ability to draw on one license for new protocols and features as needed speeds productivity and allows earlier verification of new IPs."

Cadence VIP supports protocols used widely in wireless, networking, storage, multimedia, and automotive technologies. Having the full force of the broad Cadence portfolio of VIP at their fingertips will help system-on-chip (SoC) integrators quickly build and regress verification environments and take advantage of the deep specification expertise built into each Cadence VIP component. When deployed with Incisive Enterprise Simulator or Incisive Enterprise Specman Elite® Testbench, Incisive Formal Verifier, and Incisive Enterprise Manager in concert with the unique metric-driven Compliance Management System, VIP Portfolio users can increase their confidence that their SoC will meet protocol standards.

"The introduction of portfolio licensing for Incisive VIP is a significant step forward in providing easier-to-implement, OVM-enabled, metric-driven verification methodology," said Michal Siwinski, marketing group director of Enterprise Verification at Cadence. "We believe that out-of-the-box solutions such as Incisive verification IP will help our customers meet their end-users' growing demands for predictable time to market and quality, while improving engineering team productivity."

Also today, Cadence announced the release of open source libraries for e and SystemC languages to support the Open Verification Methodology (OVM), extending the OVM beyond SystemVerilog support.
