Synopsys Announces VCS 4.1
Mountain View, Calif.--March 16, 1998--Synopsys, Inc. announced the release of Chronologic VCS 4.1, the best choice for Verilogsimulation.
VCS 4.1 reduces overall verification time on multimillion gatedesigns at all levels of abstraction. Leveraging the performanceleadership of the Roadrunner technology introduced in VCS 4.0, newfeatures of VCS 4.1 include performance increases of up to 2( andmemory capacity improvements of up to 5(, which incorporate newoptimization algorithms for gate- and transistor-level primitives, aswell as enhancements for gate-level designs providing up to 20(improvements on compiler speed.
VCS 4.1 delivers advanced simulation technology for high-leveldesign methodology on multimillion gate designs at all levels ofbehavioral, RTL, gate and transistor abstraction. Significant newcapabilities include: performance acceleration up to 2(, significant compiler optimizations to accelerate designs containing gate-level and transistor primitives, and up to 5( increase in memory capacity through the use of the compiled SDF feature.
VCS 4.1 is available immediately. Pricing starts at $40,000for networked licenses. Synopsys VCS customers with current softwaremaintenance will automatically receive the software update at noadditional cost.
VCS 4.1 is available on most Unix workstations--Solaris, SunOS,HP-UX, DEC Alpha, IBM RS6000, and SGI; Windows 95- and NT-basedsystems; and mixed Unix/NT floating network license support.
