SUNNYVALE, CA --(Marketwire - January 30, 2013) - Real Intent, Inc., a leading provider of EDA software products today announced new releases of its Ascent Implied Intent Verification (IIV) and Ascent X-Verification (XV) tools for early functional analysis of digital designs, delivering significant performance enhancements for users. Ascent products find elusive bugs and eliminate sources of uncertainty that are difficult to uncover using traditional Verilog or VHDL simulation, leading to both improved quality of results (QoR) and productivity of design teams.
Among new Ascent IIV features and enhancements are:
- Up to 50-percent faster performance on designs greater than 100K gates
- Incremental runs enabling users to resume previous analysis and avoid a complete re-start
- A new double-toggle net check that eliminates toggle net false positives caused by reset state values
- VCD traces that provide a marker to show the time of failure.
Likewise, new features in Ascent XV for detecting unknowns in digital hardware include:
- Enhanced modeling of X's that come from retention flops, a major source of X's in a design
- Broader coverage in identifying all X-sources and X-sensitive logic found by fast design audit
- Tighter SimPortal integration to logic simulation that automatically generates a simulation free of unnecessary X issues
- A new debug interface that shows the path from the sensitive construct to an X-source, facilitates waivers of X-sources and X-sensitive nets, and provides links for source code navigation
Lisa Piper, technical marketing manager at Real Intent, said, "The enhanced performance of IIV means designers can find more bugs more quickly without the need for any test benches. And our latest release of XV provides a unique X-hazard report that quickly pinpoints where sources of unknowns can obscure functional bugs or generate false problems in gate-level netlists. IIV's 50-percent faster performance for blocks greater than 100K gates and XV's enhanced detection of unknowns (X's) in digital hardware including retention flops are further proof that Real Intent delivers what we believe are the industry's best-in-class tools. Our Ascent products are the fastest and highest-capacity verification solutions available for uncovering issues prior to digital simulation."
Enhanced Debug and Language Support
Ascent IIV and Ascent XV now deliver enhanced support for SystemVerilog, Verilog and VHDL languages, and improve ease of use in both the GUI and low-noise reporting of design issues. They also come with Verdi
The latest releases of Ascent IIV and Ascent XV are available immediately for download from the Real Intent web-site.
About Ascent IIV
Ascent IIV is a state-of-the-art automatic RTL verification tool. It finds bugs using an intelligent hierarchical analysis of design intent. No test bench is needed, making it easy and efficient to find RTL bugs earlier in the design flow before they become more expensive to uncover. The analysis minimizes debug time by identifying the root cause of issues and provides the VCD traces that show the sequence of events that lead to an undesired state. Ascent IIV has the speed and capacity to handle design blocks exceeding 100K gates and provides a wide variety of complex checks including FSM deadlocks, bus issues and constant bits and nets. If SystemVerilog Assertions (SVA) or VHDL assertions written in Property Specification Language (PSL) are available, Ascent IIV can use these as constraints to enhance the analysis.

About Ascent XV
Ascent XV identifies X-sources and potential X-propagation issues early-on in Verilog RTL or netlist designs. It enables the detection and debug of functional issues caused by X-optimism at RTL, prior to synthesis. It also eliminates unnecessary X's caused by X-pessimism at the netlist. Ascent XV analysis can catch issues prior to RTL sign-off, driving costs down and avoiding monotonous, error-prone debug at the netlist level.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
