Jasper Design Automation has signed a long-term agreement with AMD to place JasperGold formal verification technology in AMD design centers worldwide.
"Jasper is now broadly accessible to multiple processor and graphics projects," said Paul Tobin, Director of AMD's Verification Center of Expertise, in a statement.
AMD's work with JasperGold exemplifies Jasper's "Targeted ROI" philosophy, solving customers' most critical design challenges in ways that also speed time to market, reduce overhead, and mitigate risk.
Tobin cited a recent example involving a complex, next-generation multi-core processor design. Designers wanted to prove that resource starvation would never occur in a new logic design; high-level analysis for which simulation alone is often insufficient.
Using JasperGold's interactive proof and liveness property capabilities, AMD was able to prove very early that this would not occur, saving extensive simulation time and gaining confidence in the extensive proof that formal verification can provide.
Jasper's customers have deployed over 100 successful chips in wireless, consumer, computing, and networking electronics.
