Canada-based PMC-Sierra, a provider of broadband communications semiconductors and processors, has selected Axis Systems Inc.'s Xtreme verification system to accelerate the development of its next-generation MIPS-based processors.

The system will be used to design and verify hardware and software for PMC-Sierra's RM9000x2 1GHz multiprocessor, the first next-generation family of integrated processors targeted at networking applications such as edge and core routers, remote access products and enterprise servers, high-end laser printers, and consumer appliances.

"Xtreme is powerful enough to verify the design of a processor with multimillion gates and offers the added benefit of enabling us to test software applications on the target hardware design," said Ray Kunita, VP of product development of PMC-Sierra's MIPS Processor Division. "We are committed to delivering a comprehensive and cost-effective family of 64-bit MIPS-based processors with high speed and performance, low power, and the smallest footprint."
