Siemens EDA launches new Veloce hardware-assisted verification system

By Dennis Brophy

For those designing the most complex electronic systems in the world, I’m excited to share that Siemens EDA has more than delivered on its emulation roadmap. To support your design innovation productivity needs we have expanded our Veloce hardware-assisted verification system.

As the first EDA company to launch a next-generation, fully integrated hardware-assisted verification system for those working to bring to market the most complex ICs for 5G communications, datacenters, and AI-smarter everything, we recognize your needs as you continue to push the state-of-the-art and the imperative for a partner that does the same.

In the Siemens EDA world, where electronic innovation meets tomorrow, the good news is, our advances in emulation are available for you today. The Veloce hardware-assisted verification system incorporates four innovative technologies:

  • Veloce Strato+ – a new version of our emulator that features a 1.5x usable gate capacity increase over the previous version of the emulator now scaling up to 15 billion gates!
  • Veloce HYCON – a HYbrid CONfigurable solution for virtual platform/software-oriented verification to help you deploy hybrid emulation systems so your teams design SoCs faster.
  • Veloce Primo – an enterprise FPGA-based prototyping platform that can scale up to 320 FPGAs using Xilinx UltraScale+ VU19P devices that supports both virtual (emulation offload) and in-circuit emulation (ICE) modes.
  • Veloce proFPGA – a desktop FPGA prototyping system that comes from a business collaboration with ProDesign and uses Intel Stratix 10 GX 10M and the Xilinx UltraScale+ VU19P devices. 

We have crafted Veloce Strato+, the two prototyping systems, and Veloce HYCON to be configurable so they will function as one seamless environment. This sets a new standard for the future direction of hardware-assisted verification methodologies.
