Understandably, EDA industry observer John Cooley had to edit down all the submissions to his annual DAC "Cheesy Must See List". Hence, allow us to share the complete text that we submitted for Incisive Enterprise Verifier's Assertion-Driven Simulation capability. Hope to see you in San Diego!
YOUR COMPANY: Cadence
YOUR TOOL: Incisive Formal Verifier and Incisive Enterprise Verifier
WHAT TOOL DOES: Formal analysis (property checking) linked with simulation
WHO/WHAT TOOL(S) IT COMPETES AGAINST: Synopsys Magellan, Mentor 0-In, Jasper
WHAT IS SPECIAL THIS YEAR ABOUT THIS TOOL AT DAC: Let's face it: in the past, "hybrid" -- mixing simulation and formal -- really sucked. Only formal gurus could use it, and by the time the guru got any results out of it, the verification project had already moved on to full testbench simulation. Now fast forward to DAC 2011, and the introduction of "assertion driven simulation" inside Incisive Enterprise Verifier (IEV). IEV provides a level of automation such that any engineer can use this tool to automagically create tests from either SVA or PSL assertions to find bugs using simulation-oriented approaches familiar to everyone, and to drive code coverage and to flag completely unreachable states. In short, the original promise of "hybrid" -- combining the mathematical certainty of formal with the scalability and ease-of-use of simulation -- is now delivered by IEV. It's "not your father's hybrid," and we guarantee you'll see nothing like it anywhere else on the DAC floor.
WHAT SPECIFIC USER COMPANIES USE YOUR TOOL: Freescale, TI, ATI, STMicro, Marvell and more as per recent CDNLive!, DVCon, and DAC User track papers
