SpringSoft software offers reusable behavior analysis database

SpringSoft Inc. releases the Siloti Visibility Automation System for SoC verification and debug. The latest software release incorporates a streamlined, easy-to-use flow with a new reusable behavior analysis database that the company says eliminates redundant analysis cycles and claims to speed up design preparation time by at least 10X over previous releases during debug operations with SpringSoft's Verdi Automated Debug System.

The system records the minimal essential signal data needed from logic simulation to achieve full visibility into the functional behavior of complex IC and SoC designs. This process minimizes simulation overhead and provides data that can then be used with the Verdi system for more efficient debug and analysis. The new Siloti release further enhances the visibility automation and debug flow by enabling engineers to choose the behavior analysis mode that best fits verification requirements (Verdi full signal dump or Siloti essential signal dump), transparently switch between modes, and store/reuse analysis results.

The new Siloti flow is based on a unified essential signal database that can be shared by multiple simulation runs and works in conjunction with the open architecture of SpringSoft's design knowledge and fast signal databases (KDB and FSDB, respectively). Essential signal analysis can be performed once per design with all results stored in the new behavior analysis database, eliminating the need to perform data analysis multiple times during debug. Engineers can also use saved results to refine the essential signal dump list used during full-chip simulation for further analysis and debug.

Siloti users will also see improved productivity with the new flow due to the user interface integration between the Siloti and Verdi environments, which now share a single GUI based on the Verdi system. Users no longer have to manually switch between tools when both are used in the flow. The required tool is automatically invoked and the Siloti engine runs transparently in the background during Verdi debug operations.

The new release of the Siloti Visbility Automation System is available starting at $26,400 for a three-year subscription license. It is fully supported with the latest release of the Verdi Automated Debug System, which is list priced at $14,000 for a one-year subscription license.
