Model Technology's ModelSim Achieves Verilog/Mixed HDL Sign-Off at austriamicrosystems

10/25/2002 - Model TechnologyTM, a Mentor Graphics company, announced that its ModelSim® hardware description language (HDL) simulation tool has achieved Verilog/mixed HDL sign-off quality at austriamicrosystems, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of highly integrated mixed-signal semiconductors. ModelSim can now be used in all CMOS, BiCMOS and SiGe-BiCMOS processes. Customers are able to design and simulate in their design language of choice (Verilog, VHDL or a mixed HDL) throughout all levels of abstraction, from high-level behavioral through gate-level.

"ModelSim is an excellent choice when it comes down to language support, mixed HDL simulation and integration with the Mentor Graphics analog/mixed-signal solution," said Rainer Holzhaider, Director Foundry Services, austriamicrosystems. "These are the reasons for qualifying ModelSim with its Verilog, VHDL and mixed language capabilities. Our internal and external customers are increasing their productivity through leveraging the advanced debugging capabilities of ModelSim."

"austriamicrosystems is one of the first mixed-signal foundries supporting ModelSim Verilog/mixed HDL with sign-off quality," said John Lenyo, director of marketing, Model Technology. "Mutual worldwide customers are able to verify their highly advanced circuits competently, leveraging ModelSim's advantages in combination with their specialty processes and design environment. We are pleased to see that ModelSim is the product of choice within the austriamicrosystems vertical product segments."
