Socle Technology Selects Atrenta’s SpyGlass-DFT for IP Verification

Atrenta Inc., the leading provider of Early Design Closure® solutions to radically improve design efficiency throughout the IC design flow, announced that Socle Technology Corporation, a leading SoC design services company in Taiwan, has adopted its SpyGlass®-DFT product for IP verification and testability hand-off. Early Design Closure solutions from Atrenta allow design capture, verification, optimization and exploration early in the design flow at the register transfer language (RTL) stage, when it’s faster and easier to correct problems and explore alternatives. This approach facilitates propagation of design efficiencies to detailed, back-end implementation, with minimized schedule risk.

“Quality IP is a key differentiator for Socle’s design services. We selected SpyGlass-DFT because it is a proven product in the industry and offers excellent performance. With SpyGlass-DFT, we can ensure that our IP is DFT clean at the RTL level. Atrenta’s pre-packaged methodologies bundled with the product allow us to accelerate design closure by using the leading coding styles for design reuse,” said Mr. Chou-Te Kang, R&D vice president at Socle Technology Corp. “We plan to standardize on Atrenta’s SpyGlass for screening of all incoming customer designs to validate RTL and optimize designs early during design hand-off, before expensive and time-consuming detailed implementation.”

“SpyGlass-DFT is adopted by system houses and ASIC vendors worldwide to hand-off designs with high testability coverage,” said Dr. Ajoy Bose, chairman, president and CEO at Atrenta. “We are committed to expanding the use of our Early Design Closure solutions in Taiwan, and we are pleased that Socle has chosen Atrenta’s products to help reduce design iterations and improve overall design quality.”
