Synplicity Inc. has released Identify Pro ASIC and ASSP verification software, which features the TotalRecall technology to provide designers with full visibility into FPGA-based ASIC and ASSP prototypes.

According to the company, designers can easily find, fix and verify functional errors at speeds approaching that of the final device. Identify Pro software improves the productivity of existing verification methodologies, such as assertion-based verification and simulation, resulting in a significantly reduced overall verification time with improved verification coverage and quality.

Working with simulation tools such as Synopsys' VCS, Identify Pro automatically connects the prototype hardware with an existing software simulation environment in a transparent and seamless manner for comprehensive RTL code analysis and debug. The Identify Pro software provides initialization of the simulator and automatically creates a test bench from the actual stimulus of the FPGA-based prototype.

Pricing ranges from $34,500 for a one-year time-based license to $69,000 for a perpetual, floating license. The product will be available for early adopters in Q3 '07.
