Siemens Digital Industries Software has introduced its next-generation Veloce hardware-assisted verification system for the rapid verification of highly sophisticated, next-generation integrated circuit (IC) designs.
This is the first complete, integrated offering that combines best-in-class virtual platform, hardware emulation, and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) prototyping technologies and paves the way to leverage the latest powerful hardware-assisted verification methodologies.
“As we enter the new semiconductor mega-cycle, the era of software-centric SoC design requires a dramatic change in functional verification systems to address new requirements,” said Ravi Subramanian, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Siemens EDA. “The introduction of the next-generation Veloce system that addresses these key new requirements is a direct result of the focused investment from Siemens to offer our customers a complete, integrated system with a clear roadmap for the next decade. With today’s announcement, we are establishing a new standard for a system that is capable of supporting the new verification requirements across a diverse set of industries-spanning computing and storage, AI/ML, 5G, networking, and automotive.”
“AMD utilizes Veloce Emulation platforms as part of our pre-silicon verification and validation solutions,” said Alex Starr, corporate fellow, Methodology Architect, AMD “The high-performance designs we create demand scalable, dependable and innovative emulation solutions. We are delighted to have worked with Siemens to pioneer high-capacity Veloce Strato+ system deployment at AMD. Furthermore, we’re excited to see 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors qualified for use with Veloce Strato and Veloce Strato+ platforms. The high-performance capabilities of both families of processors bring new levels of productivity to the Veloce ecosystem and its customers, like AMD.”
“We are delighted to welcome Siemens to the FPGA prototyping market with their launch of Veloce Primo,” said Hanneke Krekels, Senior Director, Core Vertical Markets, at Xilinx. “Xilinx has a long-standing relationship with Siemens both as a customer and as a collaboration partner, and we’re excited to provide our recent and industry-leading Virtex UltraScale+ VU19P device enabling scalability and capacity to this new product offering.”
The Veloce Strato system is also expanding the list of qualified processors by adding the AMD EPYC 7003 series processor, starting today. These new processors are fully qualified to run with the Veloce Strato systems as run time hosts and co-model hosts.
