Understandably, EDA industry observer John Cooley had to edit down all the submissions to his annual DAC "Cheesy Must See List". Unfortunately, the entry for Incisive Enterprise Manager ended up in the wrong spot, and with too short a description to really understand it. So below is what you want to know about Incisive Enterprise Manager. Hope to see you in San Diego!
YOUR COMPANY: Cadence
YOUR TOOL: Incisive Enterprise Manager
WHAT TOOL DOES: Verification Planning and Management of coverage metrics for Metric Driven Verification (MDV)
WHO/WHAT TOOL(S) IT COMPETES AGAINST: No other standalone major supplier
WHAT IS SPECIAL THIS YEAR ABOUT THIS TOOL AT DAC: It's funny how Cadence Incisive Enterprise Manager is still the only simulator independent verification planning and management tool from a mainstream vendor. And while competitors have worked hard to duplicate it, their attempt at catching up is never enough to match the breadth and depth of technology provided by Enterprise Manager. Originally introduced in 2004 for RTL functional verification, it just keeps getting better -- talk about field and time proven technology! At DAC this year, you will see how the Metric Driven Verification methodology provided by Enterprise Manager has been enhanced to support many additional technologies. While pioneered in the RTL domain, see how it’s been extended for Analog Mixed Signal, TLM Design & Verification, and Embedded Software Verification, just to name a few.
