- We require more thorough environment setup because this provides the necessary safety net and confidence that CDC analysis will be accurate and complete so our users can sign-off on CDC verification at the end; A setup-lite approach taken by our competitions can leave holes in CDC verification and nasty surprises late in the cycle;
- We identify root cause of CDC issues and only report that rather than all the symptoms of it so that users don't have to be faced with huge report with lots of noise. It is impossible to sign-off when one can't even go through and examine each line in the report;
- Our structural and formal analysis are based on actual design principles rather than design templates, therefore Meridian CDC can handle more diverse designs styles;
- We offer a layered approach to CDC verification in multiple levels.
Just as Dr Zhang and the writer were completing this EDA WEEKLY article, Real Intent released news about its performance:

After the last six months of getting to know Real Intent, its people, culture, technology and the journey it has taken over the last 10 years, what Prakash says does not seem boastful at all, but rather statements of fact.
Just as one of the motivational posters that Real Intent hangs on its office walls says, “ Real Intent continues to see beyond the current formal verification solutions”.
Real Intent has indeed gone a long way in its technology journey to provide best-in-class solutions to the design and verification communities. This writer looks forward to seeing that leadership translated into Real Intent's continued growth and ongoing technology breakthroughs in the years just ahead.
