Verific Signs Licensing Agreement with Functional Safety Solutions Provider Austemper Design Systems

Parser Platform Serves as Front End to Austemper's Functional Safety Tool Suite

ALAMEDA, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2017) - Verific Design Automation, the recognized leader of SystemVerilog, VHDL and UPF Parser Platforms in production and development use throughout the semiconductor industry, announced a licensing agreement with Austemper Design Systems, provider of an end-to-end functional safety solution.

SystemVerilog and VHDL parsers from Verific serve as the front end to Austemper's software that analyzes, augments and verifies functional safety in system-on-chip (SoC), application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and intellectual property (IP) designs ensuring they meet functional safety requirements.

Austemper will publically exhibit its Functional Safety Tool Suite for the first time at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Booth #1420 June 19-21 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

"Verific gave us a welcome boost to our development efforts," remarks Sanjay Pillay, chief executive officer of Austemper. "The completeness of its Parser Platform and support infrastructure enabled us to fully concentrate our efforts on our expertise, functional safety. We were able to leave concerns about quality parsers to Verific and develop our tools serving the automotive, medical, industrial and enterprise markets quickly and cost effectively."

"Austemper automates a critical and formerly manual aspect of the emerging functional safety space with its comprehensive tool suite," says Michiel Ligthart, Verific's president and chief operating officer. "Verific partnered with Austemper when it initially started and watched it grow into an impressive and formidable player in the functional safety market."

Verific's SystemVerilog, VHDL and UPF parsers are in production and development flows throughout semiconductor companies worldwide, from emerging companies to established Fortune 500 vendors. Applications range from analysis, simulation, formal verification and synthesis to emulation and virtual prototyping, in-circuit debug and design for test. Verific distributes its Parser Platforms as C++ source code and compile on all 32 and 64 bit Unix, Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems.

DAC attendees can stop by the Verific Booth (#639) to learn more about its Parser Platforms and pick up this year's giraffe giveaway.
