Keywords:VMM methodology? SoC verification? SystemVerilog?

Synopsys Inc. and Oki Network LSI Co. Ltd announced that Oki has achieved 15 first-pass verification successes of complex SoCs within the first year of adopting SystemVerilog and Synopsys' Discovery Verification Platform, including the VCS functional verification solution, the VCS Verification Library (VIP) and the VMM.

Oki identified several factors contributing to the rapid adoption of their advanced verification services. First, SystemVerilog with the VMM methodology accelerates productivity and reduces risk for customers who are getting started with advanced functional verification techniques. Second, the combination of SystemVerilog, the VMM and verification IP from the VCS Verification Library has enabled OKI Network LSI to offer new solutions for a broad range of customers and designs.

"Many customers used our previous-generation functional verification solution over the past five years, but with the increasing complexity of large designs our customers now require more modern solutions based on SystemVerilog for higher verification productivity," said Takahiro Kobori, senior general manager for the design business group at Oki. "After a careful evaluation of available solutions, we adopted Synopsys' proven SystemVerilog solution, including VCS, VCS Verification Library and the VMM, to deploy our next-generation verification services."

"As the industry standardizes on SystemVerilog, the VMM methodology will continue to deliver higher productivity to tackle the growing verification challenge," said Manoj Gandhi, senior VP and general manager of the verification group at Synopsys. "OKI Network LSI's impressive success over the past year in verifying multiple complex designs demonstrates the robustness, maturity, and ease-of-deployment of the VMM methodology."
