Mentor's Veloce Apps push for more yield

February 29, 2016 // By
Mentor Graphics announced new applications for its Veloce emulation platform. The Veloce Apps—Veloce Deterministic ICE, Veloce DFT and Veloce FastPath—are said to overcome critical system-level verification challenges in complex SoC and system designs.

They run on an upgraded Veloce OS3 operating system that significantly accelerates design compile cycles, gate-level flows, and the time it takes to review results. The combination of Veloce Apps on Veloce OS3 puts more capabilities into the hands of more engineers more quickly than hardware-centric strategies, claims the EDA tool vendor.

Veloce Deterministic ICE overcomes unpredictability in ICE environments by adding 100 percent visibility and repeatability for debug, and provides access to other ‘virtual-based’ use models.

Veloce DFT accelerates Design for Test (DFT) verification prior to tape-out to minimize the risk of catastrophic failure, and significantly reduces run times when verifying designs after DFT insertion.

Veloce FastPath optimizes emulation performance when verifying large multi-clock SoC designs by enabling faster model execution speed.
These new Veloce Apps join Veloce Power, Veloce Enterprise Server and other apps in an expanding arsenal of software innovations for the Veloce emulation platform.

The Veloce OS operating system, recent upgraded to Veloce OS3, adds software programmability and resource management to the Veloce platform, making it easier to add new use models that increase the ROI of the emulator.
