MoSys Selects Real Intent Meridian CDC for Verification, Sign-off

Real Intent Inc., the leading supplier of verification software for electronic design, announced that MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leading provider of high-density, high performance memory intellectual property (IP), has selected Real Intent’s Meridian CDC[tm] software for the verification and sign-off of Clock Domain Crossings (CDC) for its semiconductor IP solutions.

“MoSys IP helps accelerate our customers’ time to market and lets them create innovative and cost-effective SoC designs,” said Annie Afkham, Director of VLSI design at MoSys. “To deliver the best quality IP to our customers, we have invested in a world class design flow and methodology. We needed an advanced CDC verification solution to ensure the correctness of our leading edge designs. Meridian CDC offered us the most comprehensive verification. Real Intent also gave us the support we needed to incorporate Meridian CDC software into our flow.”

“CDC verification is becoming an increasingly important issue for today’s complex SoCs. We are pleased to work with MoSys to understand their needs and offer a solution for CDC verification of their IP designs,” said Carol Hallett, VP of Sales and Marketing of Real Intent.

About Meridian CDC from Real Intent
Meridian CDC is full-featured Clock Domain Crossing verification software. It employs automatic clock intent verification, formal verification and dynamic simulation to eliminate CDC design errors for RTL and netlist designs. Meridian supports Tcl and Synopsys Design Constraint (SDC) interfaces, offers flexible sign-off capabilities for easy and reliable CDC verification.

About Real Intent’s Verification Software
Real Intent delivers fast verification signoff with its EnVision[tm] verification software, which can lead to a 4x to 10x faster verification signoff for typical designs when compared to alternatives.

EnVision tools include Meridian CDC and Meridian FPGA[tm] for Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) verification; Ascent[tm], an all-in-one automatic verification software; Conquest[tm], a static, formal Assertion-Based Verification (ABV) software; and PureTime[tm], the most accurate verifier for SDC timing exceptions, such as false and multi-cycle paths.
