AcconSys Inc. (Beijing, China), a distributor of electronic design automation (EDA) products, is to provide sales and support for GateRocket Inc.'s RocketDrive and RocketVision FPGA verification products throughout China.
As device complexity and size continue to escalate, design verification has emerged as the primary challenge in the development of leading-edge field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
GateRocket (Bedford, Mass.) provides a Device Native approach to the specific verification and debug challenges involved with advanced FPGAs from Xilinx and Altera. Its products are designed to cut FPGA simulation and lab debug time by integrating the FPGA into the simulation environment through the RocketDrive product to enable a native execution of the design on the target FPGA device.
The RocketVision debugging tool provides new levels of visibility and patent pending debug algorithms that enable engineers to track down and correct sources of design errors. By combining the actual FPGA hardware and RTL simulation models in the same verification run, GateRocket cuts verification and lab debugging time.
“There is tremendous potential for GateRocket in China as more product developers adopt FPGA-based methodologies, both for production systems and prototyping platforms,” said GateRocket President and CEO, Dave Orecchio. “We are very pleased to be working with AcconSys which has the technical expertise and local knowledge to make our partnership a great success. In addition, this relationship provides great synergy with our ecosystem partners, particularly Mentor Graphics, since AcconSys distributes their products throughout China as well.”
Founded in 2002, AcconSys has offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Shenzhen.
