"Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), recently released the 4.4 version of its pioneering VERA System Verifier, a comprehensive testbench automation solution. VERA's new version highlights key performance upgrades that help provide functionality features and flexibility options for users verifying multimillion-gate systems."

"Synopsys' commitment to the broadening verification arena is reflected in VERA's version 4.4 support of all major VHDL simulators such as NC-VHDL, Leapfrog VHDL, MTI ModelSim, in addition to a tight integration with Synopsys' new Scirocco VHDL simulator. Synopsys also extends the performance and availability of verification tools by offering VERA for the Red Hat 6.2 Linux operating system running on X86 platforms. Synopsys is the first major electronic design automation (EDA) company to feature a full verification environment on Linux, including testbench automation, high performance Verilog simulation and code coverage simulation tools."

"We have adopted VERA for our verification environment. VERA's powerful verification features, coupled with its natural C++ like language, make it the right choice for our high complexity systems and tight design schedules," said Michael Yamamura, vice president of ASIC engineering at Redback Networks. "Using VERA on the Linux platform gave us an effective cost performance verification solution."
