POSDATA Selects Riviera-Pro HDL Simulation Environment

Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed-language simulation and advanced design tools for ASIC and FPGA devices, announced it has signed an agreement to deliver Riviera-Pro(TM) simulation environment to POSDATA, a major mobile WiMAX communication provider in Korea.

The Riviera-Pro simulation environment supports mixed HDL simulation, SystemVerilog, SystemC and Assertions. The mixed-language simulator executes on 32- and 64-bit machines providing the fastest simulation runs for all POSDATA designs, regardless of source, language or target silicon.

“POSDATA selected Riviera-Pro simulation environment based on our performance and quality of results. The Riviera-Pro simulator will be a cornerstone to assist POSDATA with the verification of their next generation of mobile WiMAX based products,” stated David Rinehart, VP of marketing at Aldec, adding, “The success we have achieved at POSDATA confirms that Aldec’s focus on the mixed language verification market and delivery of high-performance products creates a winning combination for our customers.”

“The essential function of a simulator is accuracy. Compared to competitor’s simulator, Riviera-Pro proved to be superior and also supported Verilog-2001. Moreover, Riviera-Pro interface with Novas Debussy debugging product made the decision for POSDATA very easy. Technical support from Aldec engineer was excellent and gave high responsiveness with the correct answers. The evaluation results proved that Riviera-Pro could replace our current simulator based on its high accuracy and performance,” stated Woojin Jeon, Team Manager of Hardware at POSDATA.

POSDATA, established in 1989 by Korean steel giant POSCO, provides the best IT services to customers through continued research and development. POSDATA is publicly traded on the Korean Stock Exchange under POSDATA.
