Automotive MCU design to benefit from Certitude verification
January 11, 2011 // Colin Holland
SpringSoft Inc.'s Certitude Functional Qualification System is to be used by Fujitsu Semiconductor Ltd.'s automotive business unit to raise the quality of verification environments and intellectual property (IP) design components required to develop microcontroller solutions for a range of automotive electronics applications.
Design teams in Japan initially used the Certitude system to evaluate the quality of their current register transfer level (RTL) simulation-based verification environments, improve internal IP quality, and qualify third-party IP designs for the FR product families, the 32bit RISC automotive MCU.
Fujitsu Semiconductor will now expand deployment of the Certitude software to teams at Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe GmbH in Germany as they commence development of next-generation automotive semiconductor products.
"When supplying devices to the automotive market, we felt that our current verification environment, although good, could benefit from an objective measure of verification quality to produce the best results possible," said Yasuaki Dokko, general manager of the automotive business division at Fujitsu Semiconductor. "Adding Certitude to our verification environment in our Cedar ASIC design service flow and coverage-driven based verification, we can achieve more reliable verification."
