0-In Welcomes Mentor Graphics to its Check-In Partner Program

1/14/2003 - 0-In Design Automation, the Assertion-Based Verification Company, announced the addition of Mentor Graphics (Nasdaq: MENT) to the 0-In Check-In Partner Program.

The 0-In Check-In Partner Program will provide customers of 0-In and Mentor Graphics the ability to use 0-In assertions across Mentor Emulation Division's accelerated simulation and emulation products.

"Design teams require a comprehensive ABV methodology that supports a common set of assertions across all tools in their verification flows," said Emil Girczyc, president and CEO at 0-In Design Automation. "The 0-In Check-In Partner Program provides design teams with solutions that improve verification productivity, which translates into lower costs and faster time to market. Working with Mentor Graphics, we are expanding the ability of IC designers to assemble best-in-class hardware verification tools for their design flows."

The 0-In ABV methodology enables customers to use the same assertions across their entire verification environment, including tools for simulation, formal verification, hardware acceleration and emulation.

"Our customers have requested an assertion solution that enables them to keep pace with today's increasing design complexities," explained Eric Selosse, vice president and general manager, Mentor Emulation Division. "Using the Mentor Graphics emulation products with the 0-In ABV suite, design teams can achieve greater design confidence in system level test environments."
