Co-Design Automation has announced at the Design Automation and Test in Europe 2002 conference, that it is integrating its SYSTEMSIM simulator including its CBlend technology with ARM's processor models and software debug environment, targeting the product for embedded system designers.

The product will allow the simulator to be encapsulated within an ARM core-based embedded design, accelerating simulation performance to allow pre-prototype software verification and enabling design debug using native hardware and software development environments.

The joint solution is also aimed at reducing time-to-market by enabling software verification to start earlier in the design process, while reducing the probability of chip iterations due to functional problems.

"ARM's Cycle Callable Model technology makes good use of the CBlend technology to enable a very efficient integration within the SYSTEMSIM environment. The CBlend and CCM combination has removed the need for a co-verification kernel, which has led to impressive simulation performance while retaining overall accuracy," said Duncan Bryan, ARM EDA Partnership Program manager.

The SYSTEMSIM ARM model integration runs on the Solaris and Linux OSs. It is available either as a perpetual or time based license, starting at $18,400 per year for a three-year contract.

Co-Design Automation also announced that it has ARM's EDA Partnership Program, which brings together the latter's expertise in reusable IP generation and IP modeling, with the EDA design methodology expertise of EDA tool vendors to develop faster, more accurate, routes to SoC products.
