WILSONVILLE, Ore., April 17, 2014 – Mentor Graphics Corp. (Nasdaq: MENT), a leader in advanced system verification solutions, announced today that Imagination Technologies, a global leader in the supply of semiconductor design IP including PowerVR GPUs and MIPS CPUs, has adopted the Veloce® 2 enterprise emulation platform to complement its existing emulation and verification infrastructure.
“The 800M gate Veloce Maximus helps improve our productivity for verification of our advanced IP cores and the Veloce co-modeling technology enabled us to reduce our regression times,” said Mark Dunn, EVP, IMGworks SoC Design, Imagination Technologies.
“Our collaboration with Imagination has helped drive Veloce to new heights,” said Eric Selosse, vice president of the Mentor Emulation Division. “They’ve shown us how better emulation technology helps their business through benefits such as better coverage of corner cases, increased co-model throughput, better debug, and low power verification. I look forward to continued innovation with this important strategic partner.”
The Veloce 2 emulation platform is the latest-generation hardware emulator from Mentor that reduces project schedules and costs by delivering high-performance simulation accelerations, virtualized emulation, and traditional in-circuit emulation of complex SoC designs. The Veloce 2 platform achieves these benefits through a unique emulation-on-chip architecture and best-in-class software and hardware technologies, delivering fast compiles, full debug visibility, power aware and analysis tools, and advanced memory modeling. Additionally, leading-edge protocol solutions provide off-the-shelf portfolios of easy-to-use verification IPs (VIPs), ICE applications (iSolve), and VirtuaLAB components that are an essential part of verifying both IP and SoC-based designs, delivering high levels of productivity and ROI to the end user.
