SAN FRANCISCO PLDApplications (PLDA) and EVE have forged a partnership whereby, PLDA's x4 PCIe Xpress intellectual property (IP) will be embedded in EVE's ZeBu hardware-assisted verification platform, the companies said Tuesday (Feb. 28).
With the integration of PLDA's PCI-SIG-compliant x4 PCIe Xpress IP, ZeBu now supports rapid verification of PCIe-based system-on-chip (SoC) designs, the companies said.
"The margin of error for a verification tool is practically zero, which makes our choice of third-party IP so critical," said Luc Burgun, EVE president and CEO, in a statement. "We chose PLDA to meet our PCI Express IP needs in large part because it has a reliable and market-proven solution that meets our high standards. And because our collaboration is for a perpetual license, we have a guarantee that we can confidently build our products on that trust."
