Synopsys Acquires EVE

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today completed the acquisition of EVE, a leading supplier of emulation platforms for SoC verification. Emulation is a rapidly growing solution in the spectrum of technologies used to verify today’s highly complex systems on chips (SoCs). Integrating EVE’s technology with Synopsys’ best-in-class platform of simulation, debug, verification IP (VIP), coverage, static verification, low power verification, FPGA prototyping and virtual prototyping solutions will give Synopsys customers access to the broadest verification offering in the industry. The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed. Synopsys does not expect the transaction to have a material impact on its financial results in 2012 or 2013.

“Synopsys has long led in delivering high-performance verification solutions to address the verification challenges associated with the growing complexities in SoCs,” said Manoj Gandhi, senior vice president and general manager of Synopsys’ Verification Group. “By adding EVE’s technology and engineering talent, Synopsys is expanding its investment in verification to continue to bring new technology innovations to our customers.”

EVE offers industry-proven emulation technology used by major semiconductor and electronic systems companies worldwide. EVE emulation systems deliver the highest performance and capacity, a broad portfolio of transactors, and the lowest price per gate.

“The combination of Synopsys and EVE will allow us to deliver our emulation solution more broadly while integrating with Synopsys’ best-in-class simulation, debug, VIP and prototyping solutions,” said Luc Burgun, president and CEO of EVE. “I look forward to accelerating industry innovations in hardware-assisted verification as part of Synopsys.”

EVE will become part of the Synopsys verification business unit, with Mr. Burgun leading the emulation team.

Add Authentication Security to Automotive Endpoints Using the 1-Wire Interface

Sponsored by Analog Devices

By adding a single authentication IC, automotive designers can authenticate a component with only one signal between an ECU and endpoint component. This is particularly important as counterfeit and theft are increasingly problems in automotive applications. This application note describes how to implement the DS28E40 Deep Cover 1-Wire Authenticator in a system to provide authentication for optical cameras, headlamps, EV Batteries, occupancy sensors, and even steering wheels, and more.

Why Measure C02 Indoor Air Quality?

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Sensirion

The amount of carbon dioxide in the air can be a key indicator in indoor air quality and improving our indoor air quality can have a slew of benefits including increased energy efficiency, increased cognitive performance, and also the reduction of the risk for viral infection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Bernd Zimmermann from Sensirion about the reasons for measuring carbon dioxide in our indoor spaces, what this kind of measurement looks like, and why Sensirion’s new SCD4 carbon dioxide sensors are breaking new ground in this arena.
