Denali Licenses MMAV IP to CeRoma for Digital Video Broadcasting

Denali Software, Inc., a world- leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), announced that its MMAV(TM) verification intellectual property (IP) software has been licensed to CeRoma Semiconductor to help verify their latest high-performance system-on-chip (SoC) used in digital broadcasting devices within high-volume consumer products. CeRoma Semiconductor utilized Denali’s MMAV solution to simulate DDR feature rich specifications for their next-generation integrated digital television products while providing significant time-to-market advantages.

“Denali’s MMAV verification IP allows CeRoma Semiconductor to meet the digital video broadcast (DVB-T/C/S) and internet protocol device design specifications,” said Uri Avimor, vice president of research and development at CeRoma Semiconductor. “We used Denali’s MMAV verification IP within our design flow for modeling and simulating the interactions between our latest SoC chips and external memory devices for performance analysis and design verification. CeRoma Semiconductor includes multimedia performance technology, which the broadcast sector worldwide utilizes to meet consumers demand for enhanced interactive services and greater variety from digital television services.”

Denali’s MMAV verification IP provides a comprehensive infrastructure for configuring, analyzing, and generating the optimal memory controller for any given customer application. MMAV enhances verification by enabling designers to observe and operate on system-level data transactions during simulation, which optimizes design simulation and accelerates the overall verification process.

“Chip and device designers must select the highest-quality IP to meet their memory system requirements, especially when dealing with high-performance multimedia applications,” said David Lin, vice president of product marketing for Denali. “Our customers achieve optimized and robust designs with our DDR memory solutions. We are pleased to be working with CeRoma Semiconductor, and to be a part of this exciting digital video broadcasting technology.”
