From Cadence Earning Call This Week

Comments(0)Filed under: System Design and Verification, OVM, TLM, ITRI, Nethra Imaging, Silicon Hive, nVidia, Schwartz, Rhode

In system development, we have focused on two key customer challenges.

First, we are increasing their productivity by elevating design and verification to the next level of abstraction. This quarter, we announced the industry’s first transaction-level modeling, or TLM, design and verification flow. We also announced integration of this flow to support leading embedded software environments, enabling OVM-based, hardware / software co-verification.

Second, we introduced a system validation solution, in collaboration with Rhode & Schwarz International to address the emerging 4G wireless market. Rohde & Schwarz International is a leading supplier of solutions in the fields of test and measurement, wireless, broadcasting, and radio communications.

These two initiatives combine to provide a more effective design and verification system development environment for our customers, enabling them to significantly reduce costs. Customers such as ITRI, Nethra Imaging and Silicon Hive benefit from this now. In addition, nVIDIA recently used the Cadence solution with Incisive Palladium to deliver its most complex graphics processor to date. This next generation GPU, code named "Fermi", with CUDA and unified Cache Architecture, has 512 cores representing three billion transistors, making it three times larger than the previous high-end graphics processor. The Cadence solution’s ability to verify this entire multi-core design and its embedded software, represented a major breakthrough in electronic design scalability, and was crucial to the rollout of the widely acclaimed Fermi GPU.
