Breker Verification Systems Adds Support for Multi-Processor SoCs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. –– October 24, 2012 –– Breker Verification Systems, the system-on-chip (SoC) Verification Company, today announced that the latest release of its TrekSoC™ software supports SoC designs that include multiple heterogeneous embedded processors.

TrekSoC automatically generates self-verifying C test cases that run on the SoC’s processors in a fully synchronized manner for faster and more thorough verification. Its test cases exercise a wide range of functional scenarios, ensuring that the SoC can support the necessary concurrency, system-level and software functionality while meeting performance requirements.

“This new release is an important milestone in the evolution of TrekSoc,” comments Adnan Hamid, Breker’s chief executive officer (CEO). “The rapid growth in consumer electronics is driving the creation of SoCs with multiple embedded processors for enhanced product functionality and performance. By adding verification support for multiple heterogeneous processors, we can meet the needs for a wider range of designs and help project teams verify their SoCs more completely.”

Previously, a typical SoC contained a single embedded processor and a simple bus interconnecting the processor with memory, functional blocks and peripheral interfaces. Today’ leading-edge SoCs have a hierarchy of buses and multiple types of processor cores interconnected with multiple memories and dozens or even hundreds of functional blocks and peripheral interfaces. TrekSoC automatically generates self-verifying C test cases for these SoCs.

“Programming for multicore SoC devices is a major challenge,” says Mike Bartley, CEO of TVS, a verification specialist and the organizer of the annual Multicore Challenge. “By automating the generation of test cases running in embedded processors during SoC verification, Breker frees software teams to focus on writing their production code.”

The new version of TrekSoC is available to qualified verification teams now. General availability is slated for the end of 2012. Breker will demonstrate TrekSoC at ARM TechCon 2012 in Booth #TT30 Chip Design Day, Tuesday, October 30, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.
