Nationz Selects CustomSim Mixed-Signal, VCS Functional Verification

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, announced that Nationz Technologies, Inc. has successfully achieved first-pass silicon success of a 2.5-gigahertz (GHz), 126-channel RF transceiver system-on-chip (SoC) design by using Synopsys’ CustomSim[tm] mixed-signal and VCS® functional verification solutions, part of Synopsys’ Discovery[tm] Verification Platform. These Synopsys tools delivered accurate and high-performance transient analysis of the power-up operation to within five percent of the actual silicon with 10x speed-up over Nationz’ previous tools for full-chip functional simulation. Having these capabilities shortened Nationz’ design cycle by more than two months and enabled first-pass silicon success.
