Sonics, JEDA Create Validated SystemC Models of SMART Interconnect

Sonics Inc., a premier supplier of system-on-chip (SoC) SMART Interconnect solutions, announced a working partnership with JEDA Technologies to deliver validated SystemC models of Sonics SMART Interconnect solutions. Sonics will utilize JEDA’s SystemC OCP Checker to validate the interoperability of SystemC models of Sonics SMART Interconnect solutions. Sonics will also provide JEDA with these SystemC models to support JEDA’s development and application engineering requirements. By providing each other with key design components, JEDA and Sonics are able to develop higher quality products.

JEDA’s OCP Checker was developed and tested according to the current OCP specifications. Additional testing with Sonics test cases in a real application environment significantly improves coverage and assurance of protocol conformance.

“JEDA Technologies aims at providing our customers with the most accurate and complete OCP checker available,” said Eugene Zhang, CEO of JEDA Technologies. “By verifying our OCP Checker with Sonics models, we can ensure it will deliver the accuracy our customers demand.”

“Sonics strives to have the most complete solutions available,” said Phil Casini, Sonics vice president of marketing and business development. “By working closely with JEDA Technologies, we have been able to create interoperable models and continue to improve our quality.”
