Portland, OR - November 28, 2000 - Xilinx, Inc. and Model Technology, a Mentor Graphics company,announced that the Intellectual Property (IP) Solutions Division of Xilinx has standardized on Modelsim for its simulation needs.
By using Modelsim, FPGA designers can simulate Xilinx IP in either Verilog, VHDL, orMixed Language environment, the companies said. According to the companies, this latest agreement will ensure that future versions of Modelsim are compatible with next generation Xilinx IP and FPGAarchitectures.
"Modelsim is the standard at Xilinx for verifying IP," said Mike Frazier, director of engineering for the IP solutions division at Xilinx. "Modelsim's language-neutral support provides for an easy integration into our IP verification flow allowing our mutual customers to work in their design environment of preference."
"As a result of this agreement, Xilinx and Model Technology are making a strong commitment to maintain the highest standard in simulation surrounding design reuse," said John Lenyo director of marketing for Model Technology. "Not only will Xilinx designers benefit from the tools' compatibility, but also many of our mutual customers will benefit from Modelsim when integrating IP into multi-million gate devices, like the next generation Virtex-II FPGA."
