Connectivity Package Links Concept Engineering, Verific Design Automation Tools

VVDI-Link Integrates Concept Engineering's Schematic Generator With SystemVerilog, VHDL Parsers From Verific

FREIBURG, GERMANY and ALAMEDA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Electronic Design Automation (EDA) component software leaders Concept Engineering and Verific Design Automation today announced immediate availability of a connectivity package that links Concept Engineering's Nlview™ schematic generator and visualization engine with Verific's netlist database.

VVDI-Link gives Nlview, used within EDA tools to automatically create and visualize schematics for different levels of electronic circuits, direct access to the Verific database of industry-standard, IEEE-compliant SystemVerilog and VHDL parsers. It is available from Concept Engineering as part of its Nlview family at no additional charge to existing customers.

"Concept Engineering and Verific have worked together since 2003 and continue to look for ways that will improve a designer's productivity," says Michiel Ligthart, Verific's president and chief operating officer. "While a connectivity package may seem trivial, it's actually a critical link."

The same technology is deployed in Concept Engineering's RTLvision® PRO tool, a powerful, easy-to-use register transfer level (RTL) viewer and debugger that combines Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog viewers in one integrated debugging cockpit.

"Software design teams rely on high-quality software components, such as automatic schematic generators and language parsers, which is why it was important to link our tools together," comments Gerhard Angst, Concept Engineering's chief executive officer and president. "Our new VVDI-Link package makes it easy to create innovative debugging cockpits for EDA tools."

Concept Engineering's Nlview provides automatic generation of schematic diagrams for different levels of electronic circuits, including transistor, gate, RTL, block and system. A fine granularity of user preferences can be mixed with machine computed "beauty" for the best human-readable diagrams. Interactive circuit exploration is supported by incremental schematic generation and navigation technology. Nlview provides a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) and interfaces for different GUI platforms.

Verific's software is the front end to a variety of EDA and field programmable gate array (FPGA) tools for analysis, simulation, verification, synthesis, emulation and test of RTL designs. Its Parser Platform includes support for SystemVerilog, Verilog, VHDL and UPF, and provides C++ and Perl APIs. Verific's software is distributed as C++ source code and compiles on all 32- and 64-bit Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems.

Concept Engineering and Verific at DAC

Concept Engineering and Verific will exhibit at the 51st Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Booths #1201 and #1909, respectively, Monday, June 2, through Wednesday, June 4, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone.

Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
