Lattice Semiconductor Selects Verific's HDL Component Software

ALAMEDA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 17, 2006— Verific Design Automation today announced that Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) last month selected its hardware description language (HDL) Component Software to integrate into Lattice's ispLEVER(R) 6.1 software design tool suite. Verific's HDL Component Software -- SystemVerilog, Verilog and VHDL parsers, analyzers and elaborators -- is used for exploring, navigating, analyzing, documenting and modifying large FPGA designs within the ispLEVER design environment via Lattice's new HDL Explorer(TM) capability.

The HDL Explorer tool within the ispLEVER suite integrates design creation, analysis, verification and documentation in a customizable HDL analysis environment. The HDL Explorer tool generates graphic representations of a design's hierarchical structure and connectivity based on the source HDL, and is used for IP integration, design maintenance and re-engineering of complex FPGA HDL designs. The HDL Explorer tool helps designers visualize higher-level abstractions of the design structure, reducing the time required for design management and documentation. The HDL Explorer tool also helps designers produce high-quality code with "linting" technology to detect common design rule faults.

Chris Fanning, corporate vice president of software and IP solutions, said: "Verific's HDL Component Software is a comprehensive tool that Lattice has leveraged in its development of our HDL Explorer tool, a significant new capability that enables FPGA designers to more effectively and quickly complete their designs."

"Lattice's ispLEVER design tool suite is noted for its ease of use, flexibility and performance," said Rob Dekker, Verific's president. "We're delighted to be part of a tool suite that so effectively serves the programmable logic designer community."

Verific's HDL Component Software is written in platform-independent C++ that compiles on Solaris, HP-UX, Linux and Windows platforms. All products are licensed as source code and come with online support and maintenance.
