Verific Design Automation, supplier of de facto standard front-end software, announced newly launched Parallel Engines Corporation has integrated its software into a toolset that merges semiconductor intellectual property (IP) and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) into one system. Parallel Engines licenses Verific’s Verilog and register transfer level (RTL) elaborator to serve as the front end to next-generation floorplanning software that will be announced within the next several months.
George Janac, founder of Parallel Engines, as well as Chip Estimate, Silicon Navigator and High Level Design Systems, consistently works with Verific. “Verific may be the first vendor I call once we incorporate because it’s a company with first-rate products and excellent support. Its tools have been a key component within three different product lines at three different companies. Parallel Engines will utilize Verific in its upcoming IP/RTL Level, web-enabled floorplanner, aiding designers in physical semiconductor-IP integration.”
Michiel Ligthart, Verific’s chief operating officer, adds: “George Janac understands the concept of core versus context very well and applies it over and over again. Parallel Engines strength is in IP and floorplanning, while Verific’s is in RTL parsing.”
Verific’s software serves as the front end to a variety of Electronic Design Automation (EDA), semiconductor IP and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) tools for analysis, simulation, verification, synthesis, emulation and test of register transfer level (RTL) designs. The software is written in platform-independent C++ that compiles on Solaris, HP-UX, Linux and Windows platforms. Each is licensed as source code and comes with support and maintenance.
