Synopsys unveils verification FastForward programPARIS – Synopsys Inc. has officially launched the verification FastForward migration program and invited Cadence Incisive and Mentor Questa users to join it.
Operating in pilot phase since 2009, the verification FastForward migration program has seen many verification teams migrate to VCS and improve their verification effectiveness, Synopsys said.
Synopsys now urges Cadence Incisive and Mentor Graphics Questa users to migrate to the VCS functional verification solution and take advantage of its technologies. Among these, the Mountain View-based company cited performance engines, SystemVerilog support for VMM, OVM and the UVM methodologies, a constraints solver, coverage closure technologies, low power verification capabilities, and a portfolio of verification IP.
By combining the verification FastForward program and VCS' technologies, Synopsys claimed that users can achieve up to 2x faster verification closure.
Synopsys said the verification FastForward program includes technical services, training and expert verification support. As part of the program, users gain access to services such as assistance with OVM to UVM testbench migration, migration of scripts, verification IPs, and regression environment, as well as training for efficient deployment of VCS and UVM methodology.
In a separate statement, Synopsys announced VCS support for the upcoming UVM 1.0 methodology. Combined with existing support for VMM and OVM 2.1.1, the company claimed that "this offers VCS users the industry’s most broad and mature SystemVerilog support."
