BW: Synopsys and SGI Present Linux-Based Electronic Design Verification Seminar...

Feb 29, 2000, 17:47 (0 Talkback[s])

"The seminar will present the challenges of system-on-a-chip (SoC) design verification and demonstrate Linux operating system-based electronic design verification solutions."

" 'Designers are facing unprecedented verification challenges due to the increasingly complex functions being embedded in a single device,' said Steve Smith, marketing director of Synopsys' design verification technology group. 'Industry analysts have shown that the cost of functional verification is rising rapidly and is currently taking over 50% of the entire design cycle. With this background, Synopsys teamed with SGI to accelerate the availability and performance of verification tools on Linux operating system-based parallel computer systems. This seminar is being presented as part of our ongoing commitment to this team effort.' "

" 'We are leveraging three exciting and important trends in the electronic systems market today,' noted Shing Pan, Electronics Industry marketing manager at SGI. 'First, the continuous delivery of higher performance and productivity design verification tools; second, Moore's Law in action increasing performance and affordability of computer systems based on Intel architecture processors, such as Pentium and Itanium; and third, the growing adoption of Linux. Putting all three components together makes a compelling solution to the challenges faced by SoC designers today.' "
