Real Intent’s New Verix SimFix Software Delivers First Intent-Driven Remedy for Verification Pessimism

Automatically fixes netlist pessimism to eliminate major obstacle to successful gate-level simulation

SUNNYVALE, CA–(GlobeNewswire – May 30, 2018) – Real Intent, a leading provider of SoC and FPGA sign-off verification solutions, today launched Verix SimFix, the first intent-driven verification remedy for gate-level simulation (GLS) of digital  designs. Verix SimFix automatically eliminates X-pessimism, the major obstacle to successful GLS and boosts productivity for SoC design teams. It also extends Real Intent’s product leadership in delivering the industry’s fastest performance, highest capacity, and most productive verification solutions in the market.

Verification engineers know that GLS treats unknown values (‘Xs’) pessimistically and produces results which do not represent actual hardware, and causes undesired inconsistencies with the RTL analysis of the same design. Sign-off can take months.

SimFix relies on Real Intent’s static intent-driven technology to discover X trouble spots in minutes for circuit blocks and only an hour for full-chip SoCs, by partitioning analysis across multiple compute servers.  With Verix SimFix, unnecessary verification overhead during simulation is eliminated in the presence of ‘Xs’, so design teams can more quickly verify and sign-off on correct operation for implementation and manufacture.

Verix SimFix has a simple use model, providing best-in-class performance in both the static pessimism analysis and the associated simulation X-correction.  Verification teams do not have to use inaccurate random initialization, simulator X correcting switches, nor deal with the overhead of synthesis options to prevent pessimism.

“Verification teams are looking for an easy-to-use, scalable, low-overhead, and deterministic solution to X-pessimism,” stated Prakash Narain, founder and CEO of Real Intent. “The low-touch approach of Verix SimFix eliminates the need for synthesis changes or performance killing simulation options.  It creates the right fix, in the right circuit location, on the fly, with fractional overhead during simulation.  For large circuit blocks and full-chip SoCs, Verix SimFix is the only scalable solution for successful gate-level simulation.”
