Interra Supports Accellera Standard UPF 1.0

Interra Systems, Inc., a leading provider of EDA building blocks, methodologies, and services for SoC designers, announced support for UPF, an upcoming power format compliant to Accellera standard UPF 1.0. Interra has been supporting EDA Standards since 1997 and is committed to the enhancement and support of all existing and new EDA standards.

Interra’s UPF analyzer provides a customizable framework for annotating power intent into the design at any stage in the design flow. Emulating Interra’s other industry standard analyzers, UPF analyzer has a flexible and easy to integrate C++ interface based on object oriented design with completely editable and extensible underlying database. It is an essential building block for EDA solutions that need to support UPF standard for power information. It enables engineers to focus on the competitive advantages of their own core technology. Moreover, engineers will not have to worry about the changes in the UPF standard which is still evolving and awaiting IEEE ratification.

“We are the pioneers in providing front-end building blocks for EDA standards and UPF analyzer is yet another addition to our broad offerings, showing our continued commitment to support all EDA standards,” said Vijeta Kashyap, Vice President and GM at Interra Systems. “We are partners to our customers that can leverage our unique combination of EDA and design skills to accelerate time to market and reduce development costs,” he added.

Interra’s UPF analyzer is now available on Solaris 32/64, Linux 32/64 and Windows. Please contact for pricing information.

Interra’s Analyzers and Elaborators as Front-end for EDA Tools
Support of EDA standards from Interra such as Cheetah, the Verilog and System Verilog analyzer, Jaguar, the VHDL analyzer and Concorde, synthesis elaborator are used as language front-ends by several well known industry tools from major EDA vendors, such as Synopsys, Cadence, Mentor, as well as startups. Robust field proven quality, professional support and customization services enable EDA tool developers and SoC companies to reduce time-to-market and development cost. Interra provides latest support for VHDL standard IEEE 1076, Verilog standard IEEE 1364 and System Verilog standard IEEE 1800. Interra provides analyzers for all EDA standards like UPF, SDF, SPEF, DEF, LEF, HSPICE, and Liberty.

Beacon(TM) test suites ensure compliance, coverage and quality of tool’s support for EDA standards such as System Verilog, Verilog 2001, Synthesizable Verilog and VHDL, Verilog/VHDL mixed interface and PSL. Several EDA tool companies use Beacon test suites today to improve quality of their products for designers.
