SAN FRANCISCOCadence Design Systems Inc. Monday (Feb. 23) announced the availability of a single-license model that grants verification teams access to its Incisive verification IP portfolio.
Cadence (San Jose, Calif.) said the single-license model would provides verification teams flexible, cost-effective access to Open Verification Methodology (OVM)-compliant, multi-language verification IP for dozens of commonly used protocols.
Under the new model, users purchase a single license to get access to the library of metric-driven and assertion-based verification IP from Cadence, the company said. This license can be used to check-out any of the Cadence verification IP resources into a user's verification environment and can be reconfigured on a moment-to-moment basis, providing access to new technologies and protocol verification IP as they are released, Cadence said.
"The introduction of portfolio licensing for Incisive VIP is a significant step forward in providing easier-to-implement, OVM-enabled, metric-driven verification methodology," said Michal Siwinski, marketing group director of Enterprise Verification at Cadence, in a statement.
Also Monday, Cadence announced the release of open source libraries for e and SystemC languages to support the OVM. Cadence said it has contributed these libraries, with accompanying usage examples and documentation, to the OVM World website.
