One of the benefits of the Design Automation Conference is the opportunity to follow the growth trajectory of partner companies with each successive show. Last year our long time Verification Alliance partner AMIQ (a name familiar to many Specmaniacs) made their first appearance at DAC, and they were back in force this year with new employees and new capabilities.
In this video I interview AMIQ's CEO Cristian Amitroaie, who reviews the highlights of AMIQ's "DVT" integrated development environment (IDE), including the new OVM to UVM Migration Wizard. Cristian also notes how DVT can help IP creators and integrators rapidly scale up their design and verification environments as foreseen in the EDA360 vision paper. To be blunt: in the brave new world of giga-gate DUTs and UVM-guided verification, templates for VI or EMACS will soon be taking a back seat to smart IDEs like DVT.

Finally, what Cristian was too modest to say in the video is that they have been progressively building on their EU base, branching out into the USA, and into Israel, India and Asia.
