Denali and Mentor Deliver an Educational On-Demand Webcast - 'Advanced Verification with OVM and PureSpec'

Longstanding Native Integration of Denali Verification Portfolio with OVM on Mentor's Questa Verification Platform Provides Verification Engineers Best-in-Class Tools

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Denali Software, Inc., a leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced a joint Mentor-Denali on-demand webcast about verification maximizing productivity in an Open Verification Methodology (OVM) environment by leveraging Denali PureSpec(TM) features. The webcast provides a high-level view of several OVM features such as: testbench separation, flexible component instantiation, configurability, sequence stimulus, and TLM communications as well as the implementation of these elements with the industry-standard PureSpec solution for predictable protocol verification.

"The accelerated adoption of OVM has led to increased demands for advanced information to derive the most from OVM," said Dennis Brophy, director of strategic business development at Mentor Graphics. "Collaborating with Denali has allowed us to put in place an educational webcast that highlights the industry's most extensive OVM-based portfolio of robust verification solutions along with our best-in-class design and verification environment."

Denali's SystemVerilog VIP solutions support an expansive collection of the latest interface and memory technologies, including PCI Express 3.0, SATA, USB 3.0, DDR3, and NAND Flash, enabling seamless integration with OVM and Questa verification platform for accelerated verification closure. Denali's PureSpec( )and MMAV have supported OVM since the 1.0 specification. Additionally, PureSpec's transactors, sequence libraries, and scoreboard features can be seamlessly integrated in any OVM-based verification environment to minimize risks improve design quality.

"AppliedMicro values working with leading IP providers, such as Denali, who can provide high-quality products to help us achieve our design requirements in the most cost-effective manner," said Amal Bommireddy, vice president of engineering at AppliedMicro. "In order to get to market quickly with lower risk of integration errors, AppliedMicro chose Denali verification IP architected for seamless integration into our advanced SystemVerilog design and verification methodology.
