Verification often creates a bottleneck in delivering today's highly integrated SoCs. Cadence® simulation solutions enhance predictability, productivity, and quality by:
- Supplying the metrics used to measure progress to the intent captured in the verification plan
- Employing abstractions including UVM, OVM, and eRM
- Leveraging single and multi-core performance
Our testbench verification tools automate testbench generation and reuse, while providing multi-language support and advanced debug. Using these technologies, you can achieve faster and higher quality verification at block, chip, and system levels.
Leading Solution for Large, Complex Designs
Central to our simulation and testbench verification environment is our Incisive® platform, the top verification solution for mobile/smartphone and memory/storage segments. It’s also the leading solution for today’s most complex and largest projects, providing the most comprehensive metric-driven verification methodology and cross-platform debug. The Incisive platform unifies software, formal, hardware, and mixed-signal engines to provide better throughput and turnaround time for IP and SoC verification teams.
Within the platform, the Xcelium™ Parallel Simulator exceeds other simulators on performance, power, and language including SystemVerilog, SystemC®, and Specman/e. This third-generation simulator boosts your existing simulation performance to provide an additional simulation runtime advantage of 3-10X on average using common X86 multi-core servers.
The Cadence Verification Suite fabric includes best-in-class engines integrated for maximum throughput and optimized to verify end-product applications. Debug capabilities, including the SimVision™ Debug and Cadence Debug Analyzer tools, provide differentiated advanced interactive debug for complex issues related to low power, reset, mixed signal, and testbench.
All this advanced technology is pulled together by the Cadence vManager™ solution to provide a powerful, customizable, project-level view for verification that is unique to the Incisive platform, bringing visibility and efficiency needed for effective verification planning and to manage and accelerate coverage closure for large distributed verification teams.
