SpringSoft Showcases Latest Generation Chip Design and Verification Technologies at 49th DAC

SpringSoft, Inc., a global supplier of specialized IC design software, today is hosting a series of activities at 49th Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco, Calif., starting June 4 through June 6, 2012, that feature the next-generation of its award-winning Verdi3 Automated Debug Platform and Laker3 Custom IC Design product family. SpringSoft is also sponsoring numerous annual DAC programs and industry consortium events in collaboration with other EDA and semiconductor leaders and standards groups.

At this year’s DAC, SpringSoft’s focus on delivering ‘Innovative Solutions, Interoperable Platforms and Intelligent Choices’ will be highlighted through interactive demonstrations of the latest chip design and verification solutions in its Exhibit Booth #1030. In addition, SpringSoft’s DAC booth will be the venue for the inaugural VIA Exchange Pavilion showcasing third-party tool and flow integrations with Verdi ecosystem partners that address key pain points in the chip development process and emerging technologies, including the creation, analysis, and debug of verification intellectual property (VIP), BIST, assertions, and DFT as examples.

Given that DAC is about cool technology and electronics, visitors to SpringSoft’s Booth #1030 can enter three daily drawings to win a Sphero Robotic Ball. It’s the first robotic ball that can be controlled with a tilt, touch or swing from a Smartphone or tablet, providing a unique mixed-reality experience that lets users engage in the virtual world and play in the real one.

SpringSoft @ Booth #1030

SpringSoft will demonstrate products that make it easier for engineers to do more functional verification in less time in the face of ever-increasing complexity of multiple methodologies, languages, and abstractions:

  • NEW Verdi3 Automated Debug Platform delivers significant performance and capacity gains and enables users to easily personalize, customize and enhance the interoperability of its open debug cockpit.
  • Certitude Functional Qualification System advances the state of the art in functional qualification of complex simulation and formal verification environments and critical sign-off flows.
  • ProtoLink Probe Visualizer provides debug platform for FPGA prototype boards that increases real-time design visibility by at least 1000X and integrates Verdi platform to accelerate debug across multiple FPGAs and multiple pre-fab or custom-made boards.

Demonstrations of SpringSoft’s popular Laker™ Custom IC Design solutions for analog, mixed-signal and custom digital design with superior productivity and unmatched interoperability:
