EVE, the leader in hardware/software co-verification, a member of the ARM® Connected Community™, today announced it is participating in the ARM Solution Center for Android (SCA).
SCA is a collaborative resource for designers and developers of ARM technology-based products running on Android, the open source platform from the Open Handset Alliance™. EVE joined the center to make its ZeBu-Server, a scalable emulation system capable of handling up to one-billion application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) gates, more accessible to ARM-based wireless mobile designers and developers.
As the market for smartphones, other connected mobile and home devices grows, so too do consumers’ expectations for these devices. The ARM Solution Center for Android provides designers and developers of Android-based devices, the assurance that the components used to develop these next-generation consumer electronic devices are up to the task.
“We applaud ARM for opening the Solution Center for Android and believe that it will drive innovation and accelerate the opportunities for wireless mobile devices,” remarks Lauro Rizzatti, EVE’s vice president of worldwide marketing. “We are pleased to be an inaugural partner.”
“Android was written for the ARM architecture, the leading processor architecture for internet everywhere applications from mobile to the connected home,” said Kevin Smith, vice president of Segment Marketing, ARM. “ARM is fortunate to be able to cultivate a Partner ecosystem that ensures device manufacturers have the best development solutions at their disposal.”
ZeBu-Server is a tool for all system-on-chip (SoC) verification needs across the entire development cycle, from hardware verification, hardware/software integration to embedded software validation. Priced at less than a penny per gate for large configurations, it can be shared among multiple concurrent users. The first green emulator, ZeBu-Server can be used as a multimode accelerator/emulator with a typical performance of 10 megahertz (MHz) on a 40-million gate design.
The Solution Center for Android is accessible immediately. For more information and a full list of participating partners, visit:http://www.arm.com/community/software-enablement/google/android-solution-center.php
EVE is the worldwide leader in hardware/software co-verification solutions, including hardware description language (HDL) acceleration and extremely fast emulation, with installations at nine of the top 10 semiconductor companies.
