Real Intent Solidifies Leadership in Clock Domain Crossing

Meridian 4.0 Offers Complete CDC Sign–Off for SoC Designs over 100 Million Gates;
Excels in Analysis Performance, Capacity, Accuracy and Usability

SAN JOSE, California – January 11, 2012 – Real Intent, Inc., the leading provider of software products that accelerate Early Functional Verification and Advanced Sign–Off of electronic designs, announced it is now shipping Meridian™ Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) verification software Version 4.0.

Its latest enhancements and innovations make it the only software solution that enables complete CDC sign–off for over 100M gate SoC designs.

“Meridian CDC is our flag ship product,” remarked Prakash Narain, CEO of Real Intent. “We have and continue to devote significant resources to improve its performance and functionality Our 4.0 release represents a milestone in the industry for delivering a CDC verification solution that can be used to achieve complete CDC sign–off for large and complex SoC designs from RTL to gate.”

What’s New
Setting up and signing off on the correct design environment is the first critical step in achieving accurate CDC analysis. Meridian CDC 4.0 makes this process easy with added functionalities such as better SDC and object access commands handling, early feedback on setup analysis results, as well as providing additional debugging information to facilitate design environment set up and sign–off.

Solidifying the leadership on being the fastest CDC solution in the market, Meridian CDC 4.0 improves its runtime performance (when compared to the previous version) by up to 5X on structural analysis, formal analysis, as well as design uploading and debugging with its GUI. The memory footprint of Meridian CDC 4.0 is significantly reduced so that CDC analysis can be performed on 100+M gate SoC designs in a few hours using today’s computing resources. Meridian CDC 4.0 adds data and clock glitch checking for netlist designs, enabling true structural CDC sign–off at the top level of the design from RTL to gate.

Metastability simulation is an important component of complete CDC sign-off. Meridian CDC 4.0 comes with enhancements to ease debugging, as well as providing coverage information during simulation.

Finally, there are numerous usability enhancements throughout the product, such as a new filtering and waiving capability, seamless compilation between Meridian CDC and its debugging environment SpringSoft Verdi, a utility to assist with parameter configuration etc.
