VaST Debuts CoMET 5.7 ESL Environment for Virtual System Prototypes

3/1/2005 - VaST Systems Technology Corporation announced the release of CoMET 5.7, which adds substantial new functionality to VaSTís fifth generation of electronic system level (ESL) tools. CoMET® is VaSTís electronic system level environment for the concurrent design and development of the hardware, software, mechanical and DSP subsystems of complex SoCs and embedded systems.

With CoMET, developers create virtual system prototypes in software working from high-level specifications as early as the architectural phase. The virtual system prototype is used for architecture design and analysis. CoMET allows designers to measure and visualize the quantitative impact of architectural decisions to help select the best architecture, thus enabling an architecture-driven design methodology.

The virtual system prototype becomes the golden reference model for the concurrent development of hardware and software. CoMET co-simulates with leading industry simulators, and CoMETís open architecture is designed to easily integrate into an existing tools flow.

New in CoMET 5.7:

ďThe new features and functions in CoMET 5.7 were driven by our key users,Ē commented Alain Labat, VaSTís CEO. ďWe have the fastest simulation and most advanced modeling methodology available on the market today. We are putting great emphasis on making our tools increasingly easy to use and rich in their ability to provide unparalleled visibility for designing and optimizing architectures, for concurrently developing hardware and software, and for verifying integrated systems.Ē

CoMET 5.7 is currently being used by early adopters and is available for general release March 31, 2005, with pricing starting at $30,000, one year, node locked, time based license (TBL).
