PARIS Real Intent Inc. has extended its Meridian product family with the introduction of a Design-For-Test (DFT) software tool.
Real Intent claimed that its Meridian DFT identifies DFT trouble spots in order to help designers optimize testability during Register Transfer Level (RTL) creation.
DFT Meridian, the company continued, provides what-if analysis for DFT trade-offs and predicts Automatic Test Pattern Generation (ATPG) coverage of stuck-at and at-speed tests. It is designed to work with any ATPG or synthesis tool.
"We are introducing Meridian DFT to check the pre- and post-synthesis RTL for testability and DFT-related implementation errors. As with the other Real Intent tools, we fully expect that our recipe of marshaling formal methods, structural analysis and simulation will allow Meridian DFT to meet our customers’ needs," stated Pranav Ashar, Real Intent's CTO.
Real Intent said its Meridian DFT is expected to be available in the third quarter 2010.
At this year's DATE in Dresden, Germany, Real Intent exhibited its verification solutions, including the latest Releases Meridian CDC Version 3.0 for precise and comprehensive Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) verification.
