Cadence Design Systems announced that its emulator system was adopted by the Israel-based design and marketing center of Winbond Electronics Corp.

Winbond Israel, which develops ICs for the PC and server markets and serves PC OEM and ODM companies worldwide, will use the Cadence Incisive Palladium emulator system for its advanced system-level verification needs.

According to the announcement, the Palladium emulator series reduced Winbond Israel's overall verification schedule by offering prototype-like runtime performance in a live circuit environment, with fast full-chip bring-up and powerful debug.

"We were up against a very tight schedule and limited resources and needed to integrate a complex environment that included three interfaces with mixed-language RTL," said Uri Trichter, senior director of business development at Winbond Israel. "The Palladium series allowed us to bring up our design in a 'real life' environment in a matter of days. Compared to FPGA prototyping, it greatly reduced our verification cycle and, ultimately, enabled us to complete our project on schedule."

"We continue to find that companies developing new products in the graphics and networking space, such as Winbond, have a tremendous thirst for increased verification performance that is easy to integrate into their current flow," said Steve Glaser, corporate VP for marketing, verification division at Cadence. "We are pleased that Winbond chose the Palladium series to help manage its complex system wide verification needs and address its aggressive product delivery schedules."
