EVE, the leader in hardware/software co-verification, and Concept Engineering announced that they have signed a long-term, worldwide partnership agreement. Under terms of the agreement, Concept Engineering will offer a free, time-limited usage license of its graphical viewing software to design teams employing EVE’s popular emulation platforms.
The agreement includes plans for EVE and Concept Engineering to further integrate their tools. Eventually, when design teams purchase EVE’s ZeBu (for Zero Bugs) fast, state-of-the-art emulation platform, it will come equipped with a graphical front end from Concept Engineering that includes RTLvision® PRO and GateVision® PRO. RTLvision PRO gives engineers a way to quickly visualize register transfer level (RTL) code fragments to better understand design behavior. GateVision PRO is a gate-level debugger for system on chip (SoC) designers and allows easy implementation of customer-specific debugging functions.
“Concept Engineering has built a reputation for developing easy-to-use, high-performance software that reduces the complexity of the debugging process,” says Dr. Luc Burgun, EVE’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President. “We’re delighted to offer design teams using ZeBu a novel way to tackle tough design problems through our partnership with Concept Engineering.”
“EVE has emerged as an emulation leader and a bright star within EDA,” remarks Gerhard Angst, Concept Engineering’s President and CEO. “We are very proud to work with EVE and its customers.”
About Concept Engineering
Concept Engineering is a privately held company based in Freiburg, Germany, founded in 1990 to develop and market innovative schematic generation and viewing technology for use with logic synthesis, verification, test automation and physical design tools. The company’s customers are primarily original equipment EDA tool manufacturers (OEMs), in-house CAD tool developers and semiconductor companies.
EVE is the worldwide leader in hardware/software co-verification solutions, including hardware description language (HDL) acceleration and extremely fast emulation. EVE products significantly shorten the overall verification cycle of complex integrated circuits and electronic systems designs. Its products also work in conjunction with popular Verilog, SystemVerilog, and VHDL-based software simulators from Synopsys, Cadence Design Systems and Mentor Graphics.
