Mentor Graphics Corp. disclosed that its VStation PRO emulation system has been selected by the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences as its accelerated verification platform for its Goodson series CPU chip.

The goodson series CPU design is comprised of 32bit integer and 64bit floating point functions with performance of 200MIPS at up to 266MHz clock frequency. Since its functionality is complicated, complete functional verification for such chips can require several months. The VStationPRO emulator provides RTL or gate-level verification for designs up to 120 million gates and is widely used for the functional verification of complex system designs such as CPUs, image processors and multi-media/ communications system-on-chips (SoCs).

The VStationPRO emulator is the Mentor emulation division's 6G VStation product family and provides the high performance and capacity required for applications such as hardware/software co-verification, accelerated verification, direct code verification and in-circuit emulation (ICE). Complex system design verification can be shortened while ensuring highest function coverage with the VStation solution, with emulation speeds faster than other methodologies. The VStation system was used to reduce verification time for the goodson CPU design.
