Reminder - Carbon Design Systems Targets Firmware Validation at EDS Fair and DesignCon; Virtual Prototyping Software Accelerates Time-to-Market

EDS Fair, Thursday, January 25 and Friday, January 26, 2007, Pacifico Yokohama, Japan; DesignCon, Tuesday, January 30 and Wednesday, January 31, 2007, Santa Clara, California

WESTBOROUGH, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 --


Carbon Design Systems, an innovator in Electronic System Level tools for system validation, accelerates time-to-market by enabling software validation to occur in parallel with hardware development and

--  Eliminating the wait for physical prototypes to develop software code;
--  Eliminating software -- hardware integration headaches that delay
--  Eliminating the struggle with multi-core designs.

Demonstrations at EDS Fair and DesignCon:

Carbon will demonstrate its flagship virtual system prototyping software -- SOC-VSP™ -- that generates high-performance hardware models from RTL that are used for architecture profiling, tradeoff analysis, and software validation before silicon. Carbon will also exhibit its new Replay™ technology that enables rapid software iterations through validated code, while maintaining the underlying models' cycle accuracy.

Customer Feedback:

"We had a substantial validation challenge with our latest ECA offering and decided on Carbon to ensure zero bugs at tapeout," said Terry Hulett, Vice President of Silicon Engineering at NetEffect. "The deadliest way to be late-to-market is to build a chip that has to be respun to work. As an innovator in a highly desirable but competitive arena, Carbon enabled us to bring up an early system model and continuously validate against it throughout our entire design cycle."
