Mentor Graphics introduced iSolve SAS and SAS transaction-based verification IP (VIP) solution. iSolve SAS is a plug-and-play hardware interface to the Veloce family of hardware emulators. The VIP solution delivers both a simulation environment, using the Questa verification platform, and accelerated simulation environment using the Veloce hardware for the verification of SAS Gen2-compliant devices. Both solutions are available now for deployment at customer sites.
Wind River Simics 4.4 enables engineers to define, develop, and deploy product using a virtual representation of the target hardware. Wind River Simics 4.4 supports full system simulation and allows original equipment manufacturers to undertake critical software development activities on virtual platforms, independently of any hardware development schedules, semiconductor availability constraints or other limitations. Simics will be available worldwide by the end of May, 2010.
