Denali Supports Synopsys SystemVerilog Catalyst Program

6/8/2004 - Denali Software announced that it has joined the Synopsys SystemVerilog Catalyst program. The industry program is designed to speed support of SystemVerilog by electronic design automation (EDA) vendors, verification intellectual property (IP) suppliers, and training service providers to ensure designers' success with SystemVerilog. By joining the SystemVerilog Catalyst program, Denali will utilize the program framework to extend its verification IP products and methodologies to support the SystemVerilog hardware description and verification language.

In addition, Denali will be presenting details of its support for SystemVerilog at Accellera's SystemVerilog: Right Here! Right Now! lunch event held at the 41st Design Automation Conference (DAC) Tuesday, June 8, in Room 29 of the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, Calif. This SystemVerilog event is accessible to all DAC attendees.

"Our goal is to deliver the highest quality verification IP to our customers, and ensure a seamless integration with other state-of-the-art design and verification methodologies," said Kevin Silver, vice president of marketing for Denali. "There is great momentum behind SystemVerilog, and our customers are now entering the adoption phase. We believe that by supporting SystemVerilog with our PureSpec verification IP product portfolio, especially for PCI Express, our customers will see significant overall design and verification productivity improvements."

"We welcome Denali as the most recent member of the Synopsys SystemVerilog Catalyst Program, which is continuing to grow with over 50 vendors," said Rich Goldman, vice president of Strategic Market Development at Synopsys. "The demand for SystemVerilog from the design community is obvious based on the enthusiastic and overwhelming support for the language by the vast majority of the EDA and IP industry. Denali's strong commitment to SystemVerilog benefits designers through faster and more unified verification."
