March 16, 2011 08:00 ET Eases Verification With New VIP Portal

Finding the Best Verification IP Is Made Easier, Saving Engineers Time and Helping Ensure Thorough Validation

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) -  In a move aimed at speeding the process for finding and deploying verification IP (VIP), introduced today a new microsite focused specifically on IP for validating chip and SoC designs. The new site is designed to make it easier for engineers to find the most up-to-date information and appropriate verification IP for their specific project needs.

In addition to the new microsite, the team announced that the InCyte Chip Estimator tool, available for download for free at, has been enhanced via a new VIP Advisor feature, which suggests compatible VIP based upon the design IP in the project.

"SoC Realization requires the assembly of multiple IP stacks into IP subsystems, which, in turn, must be verified," said Adam Traidman, general manager of "It's a daunting task, but it's crucial that it's done right. The new VIP support at the site provides design teams a speedier path to finding the correct protocols for verification and can help boost the accuracy of selecting the correct protocols to make the SoC more reliable."

The VIP microsite boasts verification IP from more than 25 vendors. It contains detailed information about the latest VIP, including technical and marketing materials such as data sheets, white papers, news, and videos.

The chip planning portal is an ecosystem comprised of over 200 of the world's largest IP suppliers and foundries. These companies all share in the common vision of helping the worldwide electronics design community achieve greater profitability and success. To date, a diverse global audience of over 30,000 users has joined the community and has collectively performed over 120,000 chip estimations. is a property of Cadence® Design Systems, Inc.
