Cupertino, Calif.--March 17, 1998--Ikos Systems, Inc. introduced Gemini VCS. With Gemini VCS, Ikos's NSIM hardware accelerator supercharges simulation performance for the VCS simulator, developed by Chronologic and now sold by Synopsys.VCS users can improve simulation speeds by up to 80( for full timing and sign-off, and up to 20( for functional RTL. Gemini VCS also supports virtually unlimited simulation sizes--up to 16 million gates.
The Gemini family consists of Gemini VCS and Gemini CSX. Gemini CSX is ahigh-performance, mixed-level simulator that provides an optimized interface between the Cadence Verilog-XL environment and Ikos's NSIM hardware accelerator. Similarly, Gemini VCS provides a high-performance integration of Synopsys VCS with NSIM. Gemini VCS is available now from Ikos, with a U.S. list price of $25,000.
